Hi I would like to get some recommendations for surgeons that are in the Arizona area. I would also appreciate if there are places or people to stay away from as well.

I am 23 and have gone to kaiser in san diego and was diagnosed with DDD, bulging disc, scoliosis and kyphosis. I have been on pain meds for almost 2 ½ years now and am wanting a second opinion. I am on 50mcg fentanyl every 2 days and oxycodone 5mg-script for 150 a month. I am looking to get to the root cause of everything and actually have a REAL ANSWER as to why I am in so much pain. I have been told that surgery is not an option for me but I have also been told that it may be down the road. I would just like to find a doctor in the Arizona area ( I have moved since San diego) that has had very good outcomes for patients and knows exactly what they are doing.
Any recommendations would be extremely helpful!

Thank you everyone and I hope that we can all be well someday.
