Jennifer's Spinal Surgery Success Story

Published on: 01/24/2012
“I just got hired here at Nicklaus Children's Hospital as an Office Manager of Endocrinology! Not only do I feel so proud and lucky, I also feel very honored to be a part of a hospital where I had a serious back surgery done several years ago. I had a sixty degree curve and was just a kid. As a baby I had very bad pneumonia and was taken very good care of. As I walk down the halls, I always feel so very proud to be here. The doctors I have been associated with are very caring and really do care about the patients. Especially the office I currently work in. The doctors are very caring and very hard working. A hospital like this, with this kind of staff, is what all hospitals should consist of. I suppose it is the values and integrity that is up held here. Today I participate in yoga and a healthy life style. One day I would like to start a group for young women after scoliosis surgery. I remember too, as a kid, spending hours doing my homework after school, in the on call dr rooms in the Wegan building, while my mother was completing her residency in the emergency room. Since I was four feet tall, my memories of Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, and all the extremely caring staff from cafeteria employees to chiefs, my experiences have been extremely positive and definitely memorable.”
