Dear Family and Friends,
June 6, 2011 will forever be etched in our memories. It was when Jeffrey Guyer passed away. He was our beloved son, brother, husband and friend. He was an amazing 30 year old young man, full of life, already so accomplished and with so much still to give. He was taken away much too soon by a very rare form of sarcoma which accounts for 1% of all cancers. When Jeffrey was first diagnosed, and throughout his long year of chemotherapy, surgeries, clinical trials and pain, he worked relentlessly to start fundraising to help raise money for sarcoma research. That first year he raised over $100,000. Before he passed away, he asked that we continue his fundraising so maybe just one person's life can be saved. We have raised over $350,000; however this is not nearly enough funding to carry out the necessary research studies that will help to one day find a cure to this devastating cancer. We are asking for your help. We realize that everyone has their favorite charity, their own family member who has died from something terrible, their own passionate cause. We are not asking you to run or walk in a 5K race or bake cookies or cakes for a bake sale or buy a fancy new outfit for a charity event. We are asking that you give however big or small in memory of Jeffrey. We have started a fund at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston which is an amazing institution dedicated to the treatment and research of all kinds of cancer. A simple click to the following link will ensure that all donations will go directly to the Jeffrey Allen Guyer Sarcoma Research Fund.

Shelly, Rick, Kim, Dan, Lindsay and Autumn

Playing Only One Sport Can Be #Dangerous for Your Game and Your #Health. Here’s why: http://bit.ly/1LSjS29
Some recent research suggests that exclusive participation in only one physical activity, can cause problems.

According to several national publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the increase in the number of electronic medical records and healthcare history has encouraged more patients to become more actively involved with their healthcare. This begs the question: is this a positive or negative turn of events? Read the full story here: http://ow.ly/Rsbg5

Congrats to Dr. Kevin Gill at UT Southwestern University Hospital who performed the first Activ-L Lumbar #ArtificialDiscReplacement after it received FDA approval. Dr. Scott Blumenthal was there during the surgery and will be implanting the same disc soon.

New research reveals that in some cases, physical therapy can be as effective as surgery, which is why the doctors at Texas Back Institute recommend that patients suffering from serious back pain consider surgery last—after medication and physical therapy.

If I could this office no stars, I would. My pain doctor closed his office here, and so I was forced to find a new one. So I spent $34 to have a CD of my records sent to them (they wouldn't take them directly from me since I might have altered them, as if I could alter a CD!), it took them a week to review them, and then they refused to accept me as a patient. They suggested I see a chronic pain doctor when I need a back doctor. I have Chiari Malformation Type 1, Scoliosis, lumbar spinal fractures, at least one herniated disc, and constant leg pain and weakness probably from sciatica, but when I tried to drop off the results of an MRI and X-rays that showed these conditions, the office staff wouldn't accept them until the doctor had reviewed my records. What an absolutely ridiculous way to run an office! What a terrible way to treat people who are in pain. They obviously don't care about helping anyone. Maybe they have more important things to do. The hoops you have to jump through are not worth it. I suggest if you are reading this, you go elsewhere for medical care.

I had the misfortune of being treated by mr Patel . I have permanent numbness and pain in my right arm from an accident . I came to this "doctor " for treatment . He gets X-rays and then starts with wanting all these MRIs . Well I couldn't afford the scans -my company was in transition and I was having to cut back. Well a few months later I manage to get ahead a little bit , I go and get the scans $780 and Also another bill$2000 some dollars from the hospital that they didn't make me aware of. Mr Patel had them scan the wrong part. So here I am now with an enormous hospital bill and still in pain . When I confronted them with this, they sent me a letter declining any further medical treatment . Is this how things are done? You have a sick person and you rip them off, waste their time and leave them wondering WTF? This doctor does not care about his patients . He is an evil money grubbing type who is not in it to be a healer but rather to deal only with cases where he feels he can make money . If he can not make a sack of money on you then forget it. I am in pain , I have numbness, ringing in my ears and all I get is ripped off. Scam! Fraud , MALPRACTICE !

I am 23 years old and thanks to the back institute my quality of life is questionable. I had a sever fracture at my T10 and T11 area that happened a year and half ago, and they told me there was nothing they could do and wrote me off basically. Now I have a bulging disc in my cervical spine, a bulging disc right below my fracture that's now healed but caused that and also degenerative disc disease all in my thoracic. But there was nothing they could do? They are a joke! They also lied and told my father they did a second injection on him but they were not able to get in but never told him that until he saw the reports years later. They don't listen and frankly don't have the knowledge needed obviously to be operating on a humans spine. I am lucky to have great doctors now but I may need a more in depth procedure now because I was told by these idiots to just let the fracture heal. Super frustrating!!! I am 23 and I shouldn't have to live in severe pain every day but with the lack of help from these assholes, that's my reality. Just hoping my wonderful doctor now can help to fix my back for the long term. Just saying... STAY FAR AWAY FROM THESE SO CALLED DOCTORS THAT ARE MORONS WHO COUKD CARE LESS ABOUT YOU
