Default Looking for Doctor Contact Information

I’m looking for contact information for Drs. Rischke, Desai and Bierstedt. I’ve seen the info before on this site, but can’t seem to locate it now. X-rays taken yesterday show I now have bone-on-bone contact at L4/L5, and looking to have surgery done in the next couple of months. Looking for contact info and the process for getting my info to them.
Thanks,
Brian

Hi Brian,

Maybe you found the information by now? If not, the advanced search should help you find what you need:

https://www.adrsupport.org/forums/search.php

Also, the international forum probably has it -- second to last one on the main forum page.

You are asking for these doctor's contact information, but say in your signature that you have ADR scheduled for June 2019?

Signature is current while his original post was from April... I don't believe there's (necessarily) a conflict.

"Mild scoliosis of lumbar spine".
Four central disc protrusions in thoracic spine.

C5-C6, C6-C7 bulging, bone spurs. Imaging not looking good. Successful CP-ESP's placed in Oct 2019 by Dr. Desai.

Delayed lumbar surgery to work on bone density. Considering options now, some but minimal bone density improvement. Will only use LP-ESP.
