Beth Bozzelli - Scoliosis Surgery
My name is Beth Bozzelli. I live in New Jersey. I live in Cape May County
New Jersey, it's the southernmost county in that state.
I've had scoliosis my entire life. I was officially diagnosed with it as a very
young teenager and spent time in the
Milwaukee brace, the old, almost archaic
looking brace that went up around your
chin, down through your pelvis.
Flash forward to now. I'm a 59-year-old woman, osteoporosis begins to set in and about three years ago I began to notice that I
was losing height.
I've always been an avid runner. I could no longer run because the pain was just becoming incrementally worse and worse,
to the point where I could no longer run. Then I flipped it out and would walk. Got
to the point where I couldn't walk any
distance because of the discomfort. My
regular activities of daily living
became difficult to do. I flew over many
hospitals, many hospitals, to decide to
have the surgery here.
I am three inches taller which is
My pain level is almost non-existent. I
was in chronic pain.
Despite all of the chirping in my ears,
you know stay in Philadelphia...go to New
York... go to California. I checked them out
and this was it.
This was this was where I wanted to be
and I have never looked back.
