Air Force Captain Finds Relief from Progressive Scoliosis

Diagnosed with progressive scoliosis at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Capt. Garrett Garcia knew he wouldn’t be a pilot. He became a developmental engineer instead and continued to serve his country with honor. But he also endured years of worsening pain as the condition advanced. After his second tour abroad, Garcia went to see Dr. Gerard J. Jeong at the Tucson Orthopaedic Institute in 2009.

I was referred by my Primary Dr. to Dr. Jeong. That was the start of a successful experience. The MRI showed sever stenosis in my lower back just above a fusion I had done 18 years ago and had bad complications for many months. Dr. Jeong, PA Ashtyn Kasch and his staff preformed the surgery in less time than expected...

My wife and I are both patients of Dr. Jeong. Before and after her recent back surgery, Nicole and Dr. Jeong provided outstanding knowledge and support. Nicole especially went out of her way to make sure we understood what to expect, both procedurally and recovery. She really helped in the recovery process and communicating with my wife's employer. Thanks again...

It has now been a year and a half since he performed my surgery. I could not comprehend having a fulfilling life after fusing most of my spine, inserting instrumentation, and making my back straight again. But,...

After a year and a half with continual pain while walking, I finally have relief after Dr. Jeong diagnosed and operated on my back to correct spondylolisthesis, stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica. The lumbar laminectomy fusion - instrumented was very successful. I have not had any of the spinal and sciatica nerve pain since. The pain from the trauma...

My life has changed since I had spinal surgery, from Dr. Jeong. It went from a boring, sedate lifestyle, to an active, fun, meaningful adventure every day. After waking from surgery, the pain was gone in the backs of my legs, just that quick! Before surgery, I couldn't even do one lap in this pool, now I can do 50....
