I want to apologize in the delay sending you this email. The care my husband received when he was at Barnes during and after his spinal fusion surgery was absolutely flawless. Your attention to every detail and your warm personality made the visit feel far less traumatic for all of us. Thank you for doing such a great job. The team on that floor were also outstanding and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the BJC patient care system. Thanks for everything you did for us and your follow up. You are a gem and patients and their families will have a more positive and healing outcome thanks to your wonderful care and concern. Have a wonderful holiday season! Warm regards, G.E. and M.E.
I received a phone call today from the wife of your male patient. L. H. is back in Wisconsin and recovering well after being in St. Louis for the past 8 weeks. His wife wanted to let me know that during his stay at BJH in October 2015, they received "wonderful, awesome and professional" care. She stated "they even knew when you needed a hug." The staff in the PACU helped calm her nerves before both surgeries. She also stated that Dr. Gupta's bubbly personality when rounding on her husband in the ICU was refreshing.
A skillful, compassionate, perfectionist surgeon. A great teacher and role model for deformity surgeons worldwide.

Dr. Gupta and his team did an amazing job correcting with curvature of my son’s spine. The results are better than we expected. Recovery was difficult in the beginning, but we are now 6 weeks post surgery, and he is starting to resume regular household activities. Thank you Dr. Gupta for all of your encouragement and support during this challenge.
The degree of pain relief has been so great that I now know I should have had this surgery sooner. Dr. Gupta told me what to expect and he was exactly right. Wash U is getting a wonderful surgeon.

Dr. Munish C. Gupta specializes in the correction of spinal deformity in pediatric and adult patients, particularly scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, revision surgery, and flatback deformity. Surgical procedures include anterior release and posterior spinal fusion, as well as spinal osteototomies: vertebral column resection and pedicle subtraction osteotomy.
Dr. Gupta has extensive expertise using a four-rod Pedicle subtraction osteotomy that has been shown to prevent rod breakages and reduce complications such as pseudarthroses.
Lateral curvature of the spine greater than ten degrees, with rotation of the vertebrae within the curve. Rotation of the vertebrae also occurs which produces the rib cage and flank muscle asymmetry.
A forward, exaggerated rounding of the back, most common in older women due to osteoporosis, but can also occur in infants and teens.
Occurs when one vertebra slips forward onto the vertebra below it, causing numbness or pain in the back or legs.
Additional surgery to correct a problem that is worsening or did not heal properly after previous procedures.
Forward posture usually due to a flattened lumbar spine from postoperative or degenerative changes. When viewed from the side, the patient’s head may be several centimeters in front of their hips.
