My Spine Condition
We have created informational websites to help educate people on certain spine problems that we often see and treat. Read and view video about scoliosis, kyphosis, arthritis, and spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebra):
Scoliosis is a spinal deformity that is not necessarily painful or debilitating for the people who have it. Our myscoliosis section of sonoranspine.com provides information about some of the more common types of scoliosis, including causes, conservative treatment options, as well as surgery for severe scoliosis.
Kyphosis is a term used to describe the forward curvature (normal and abnormal) of the upper spine. Our mykyphosis section of sonoranspine.com provides information about adult and adolescent Kyphosis, and about treatment methods including spine surgery and surgical instrumentation for spinal deformity correction.
Spondylolisthesis -- Easier to say "slipped disc" -- yes. But this is a medical information website, so we use accurate speech. Our myspondy section of sonoranspine.com provides information about correcting spondylolisthesis including spine surgery.
For those who suffer from arthritis or would like to learn more about it, we offer Arthritis Education by Professionals, Inc. presenting classes and seminars at any public facility with an audience that can benefit from the information.
Sonoran Spine Research on the Leading Edge of Spine Research and Advanced Surgical Technique
One noteworthy aspect of the sites above is their demonstration of a revolutionary surgical hardware system and technique developed by Dr. Dennis Crandall of Sonoran Spine in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
This technique is identified by Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics as the "Crandall Method" for treating scoliosis, kyphosis, and spondylolisthesis.
Campbell's is a widely used resource for orthopedic surgery and "...an essential resource for the operative orthopedic surgeon." (— JAMA)
