“In short, patients who are aware of their health can help us — help them get better.  So patient education is important and we focus on teaching our patients about their spine problems.  Basically, we want our patients to be active in their treatment plans, and therefore, we take the time to listen to our patients, collaborate with them, and explain each step of their treatment.”

Deborah Butter

Scoliosis Surgery Patient:

Sadly, Deborah couldn’t remember a single day in her life without pain, because she was born with scoliosis. Before being treated, she had an 82-degree curve at the top of her spine and an 89-degree curve at the bottom. Also, Deborah was in terrible pain and suffered from other scoliosis problems, including a chest deformity that made it difficult to breathe. In addition, she was also having a hard time walking and required a cane. “In other words, I was in so much pain, I felt like a zombie most of the time,” said Deborah. “Then I couldn’t work anymore and I couldn’t shop or cook.” Finally, that all changed when she had scoliosis surgery with Richard Hostin, MD. “Meanwhile, I have a brand-new lease on life, living without pain, thanks to Dr. Hostin,” said Deborah Butter, Scoliosis Patient

“Research is the backbone of our institute. As such, we are leaders in scoliosis and spine research by spending hours in international study groups and with our research team studying heredity, growth, structural and biochemical changes in discs and muscles, and tracking changes in the nervous system. Consequently, we use this research and the knowledge that we learn to devise the best available treatment plans to help our patients have the most successful outcomes possible. Research is also underway to determine the effectiveness of various treatments by understanding the surgery results.”

In many cities, orthopedic surgeons heal broken bones but do not specialize in the care and treatment of scoliosis. Therefore, many patients must travel to other cities to obtain the benefit from Scoliosis Specialists and improve their lives. Thus, patients come to us from all over the U.S. and the world. Although many patients with spinal curves believe there is no treatment option available or that as an adult their spinal problem cannot be treated, Southwest Scoliosis and Spine Institute offers medical solutions based on proven techniques and procedures. So why not view and listen to many of our previous patients? Please visit our Testimonials Page and learn how we have helped other scoliosis patients and can help you too!

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

In the past, all spine surgeries were done with a large incision to gain access to the spine and perform a procedure. In the last decade, new technology has brought minimally invasive spine surgery to the forefront. Also, advances in medical imaging, surgical techniques, instruments, and equipment have vastly improved surgery and Health Care.

Certainly, cutting-edge new inventions have greatly enhanced spine surgery and it has made it possible to use laparoscopic techniques to repair spine problems. Although these surgeries are less invasive, they still allow our expert doctors to fix spine problems. Further, surgery has been aided by new computer advances that have created much better imaging. Additionally, scientific breakthroughs speed up bone growth, which continues to make minimally invasive procedures even more effective for our patients.

Meanwhile, recovery from minimally invasive surgery is better than old-type surgeries. Then hospital stays are shorter and usually as little as two to three days. Finally, give us a call and make an appointment with our spine doctors to talk about minimally invasive spine surgery.
