My Doernbecher Story

Jeremy's Story

My 17 year old son was diagnosed with Scoliosis just about 2 years ago. When we were ready for surgery we were very pleased to find out that Jeremy would have his surgery and hospital care at Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

His spinal curve was approximately at 58.3 degrees WE knew the surgery would be lengthy and the hospital stay would need to be at a pleasant place. Friends and loved ones were also relieved to know care at Doernbecher was the place Jeremy would begin his after care and recovery. The staff Courtney, Tracy, Calandra and of course Dr. Turker have been compassionate, professional and considerate of Jeremy and the family's needs and follow-up questions. He will be coming home soon in better health because all six dimensions of wellness were addressed!
