Dr. Dennis Weiner was my doctor who treated my scoliosis. He did my surgery successfully in 1981. I have a rod and wore a cast for 9 months and 3 weeks.
I am amazed at the new technology and how much doctors can correct it today compared when I had it done. I still remember the nurses to this day, and the care I received was phenomenal. I still have a lot of pain, but have been able to live a healthy normal life.
