I have a 17 year old, left bedridden due to a spinal fusion. She has since been diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome). She had 2 discectomies in Aug 2019 and November 2019 on L4-L5 and a L4-L5 fusion to fix a broken facia bone (from second surgery) September 2020. Right after the fusion surgery she has been unable to sit up for more than 5-10 seconds without the pain just being horrific. She is unable to stand, her left foot is extremely hypersensitive (even air hurts). She can not lay on her back, due to pain also. We did physical therapy immediately following surgery for 4 months with NO improvement. I'm reaching out because our local children's hospital said they can't do anything for her other than what her pain dr is doing. Do you have any suggestions, we are located in the Oklahoma City metro area. Thanks!
We were so excited to see Ms. Sherry Gilbert on check-up day! She always greets us with a smile!
Maddison pitching almost 4 months after her accident! Thank you Scottish Rite and Dr. Stutz, Amy Lake, and Ashley Pittman!
Thank you Dr. Stutz, Amy Lake and Ashley Pittman for helping Maddison get back to her old self!!! #softballmomma #fallballherewecome
This is my little boy that loves acting and modeling 💚💚💚 he’s a super happy boy 💚💚💚
As grandparents, we can't thank you enough for the surgery and medical support that you provided to our Grandson, Joshua Davis.

Josh was patient at your hospital in Dallas, Tx early in his life. Now, he's a junior in high school this year. The corrective back surgery that you performed and patient care that you delivered was a miraculous success. He is now playing basketball for the Grapevine Faith Christian School's Varsity Team and recognized as "Newcomer of the Year" and "1st Team - All District". We are all very proud of Josh and appreciate everything that you and your staff have done for him. Kimberly Davis Kathy Fuller Rebecca Young Candelario

As we approach the New Year I just wanted to share - I was a patient at TSRH in the eighties, I am a below-knee amputee and have had to wear a prosthetic leg since 1982.

After a 26 year career in Engineering I am now working as a corporate pilot.

Flying, as with most other areas of life for those of us with disabilities, requires adaptation, either by technique or technology - don't let others tell you what you can or cannot do, find out for yourself, be willing to explore and experiment, test the limits of your capabilities, you might surprise yourself.

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!
