Scoliosis spine surgeons, Drs. ABC, are the most qualified and experienced in the world when it comes to scoliosis surgery. Dr. Antonaicci’s Anterior Scoliosis Correction surgery, also known as ASC (superior to “VBT”), provides a flexible approach to correcting the scoliosis curve.
To request a scoliosis case review from Dr. Antonacci himself, please fill out our comprehensive form below. After the doctor’s review, a staff member from our doctor’s office will contact you (typically within 48 hours) for more information about your condition or to schedule a scoliosis consultation appointment. Although Dr. Antonacci and his team focus primarily on scoliosis and kyphosis, they have years of experience in other spine conditions, so don’t hesitate to reach out for more information.
After submitting your scoliosis case for review, one of our team members will contact you to schedule a spine consultation. Once the appointment is on the calendar, you can do a few things in preparation for the initial visit. First, gather any pertinent medical records, X-rays, and MRIs. Then, be sure to have your insurance card on hand if you would like to file insurance claims directly.
On the day of the scoliosis appointment, you will sit with a consultant armed with notes from your scoliosis case review. The consultant will start by going through your medical history, including family histories, previous treatments, and symptoms (such as back pain or difficulty breathing).
After a review of your medical history, your consultant will perform a physical exam. Based on the results of your scoliosis case review and medical history, this exam may include a rotation assessment (for scoliosis patients) or a kyphosis/forward bend test (for hyperkyphosis patients). At this point in the spine consultation, we will also take a radiation-free scan of your back to analyze the curvature of your spine.
Finally, we will go over your treatment options and provide an in-depth look at how the operation will progress. If you have any questions about the procedure, we would be more than happy to answer them during your consultation appointment. Before you leave, we will ensure you understand your next steps and how you can properly prepare for the day of surgery.
At the Institute of Spine & Scoliosis, we have treated hundreds of cases of scoliosis using our innovative anterior scoliosis correction technique. Our before and after-surgery photos speak to the efficacy of this treatment and can help you see if it’s right for you. To find out if you would be a good candidate for ASC, fill out our case review form with as much detail as possible. Dr. Antonacci will personally review your case, and we’ll be in touch shortly.
