    In research for my brother, I found you online. I know you must get so many questions and emails, but I am hoping you can point me in some direction as I feel desperate to help my brother in some way.

    He is 36 years old; he has a 15 year old spinal injury (he wore a halo for 6 months), but in the reports from 1993, it says films reveal S scoliosis and changes compatible with Scheuermann’s. In the past 6 months the injury has gotten SO incredibly bad that he has been told “enjoy each day that you wake up and can walk”. Neurologists in Denver won’t see him without insurance and so he just keeps going into his small town ER to see docs and they have said they don’t know what it is. Slowly his spine and shoulders are shifting and he has nerve tickling and spasms. His pain is terrible.

    He has no insurance. He will be on complete disability soon. Do you help patients like him (no insurance)? Do you work with patients on medicare? If not, do you have any resources for him.

    It’s so hard to see him slowly deteriorate and each day get worse. Thank you for any help.

    I have a service called a “long distance” consult. This service is normally reserved for patients who live too far a distance from the clinic to be seen initially unless I can be assured I can help them. I would be willing to review your images through this program and point you in the right direction.
