I am an 81 year old man. I have suffered with scoliosis in my spine for over 25 years. Several surgeons told me my condition was inoperable. Then I heard of Dr. Richardson a spine surgeon at Duke hospital. Dr. Richardson reconstructed my spine in January 2020. I now have good posture, walking and standing straight up, a 100% improvement, with 80% less pain. Many thanks to Dr. Richardson and Dr. McDonald, credits to their profession and Duke hospital.
