To request a scoliosis case review from Dr. Antonacci and his team, please fill out our comprehensive form below. After review, a staff member will contact you (typically within 48 hours) for more information about your situation. If deemed a candidate for ASC by Drs. ABC, a courtesy phone consultation with Dr. Betz shall be arranged, and if proceeding with surgery, a courtesy zoom consultation with Dr. Antonacci shall be scheduled.
Although Dr. Antonacci and his team focus primarily on scoliosis and kyphosis, they have years of experience in spondylolisthesis as well, so don’t hesitate to reach out for more information on Dr. Antonacci’s less invasive approach to spondylolisthesis. The practice does not perform surgery for adult degenerative spine problems such as back pain, herniated disc disease, cervical or lumbar stenosis. Intakes of this nature shall not be addressed.
After submitting your scoliosis case for review, if you are deemed a candidate for ASC by Drs. ABC, one of our team members will contact you. If you are not able to visit in person, you shall receive a courtesy phone consultation with Dr. Betz. After that consultation, if you are still a candidate for surgery, you shall receive a courtesy zoom consultation with Dr. Antonacci.
Of course, in person visits are always welcome as well:
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. Our staff will guide you on this process. Then, be sure to have your insurance card on hand if you would like to file insurance claims directly.
In person visits are typical format with a review of your medical history and 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 typically take a radiation-free photo scan of your back to analyze the curvature of your spine (like contour mapping).
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 do our best to ensure you understand your next steps and how you can properly prepare for the day of surgery.
