Rods and screws removed

I have had  titanium  screws and rods in my back for many years. And have found out I am allergic to metal.  I am in search of a doctor in Northwest Florida to remove the screws and rods.  Any suggestions would be great.  
 Thank you and have a blessed day

    Hi Gary, and welcome to Spine Health!! It is very difficult for anyone to respond when we do not have enough information to go on. If we can get the information up front then people will start responding.
    Some of the basic questions are: what doctors haven you seen? How did you find out about this? Did your doctor not know of someone to recommend?
    By forum rules we cannot give doctor's, clinics or hospital's names.
    But we will help all we can, just give us a little more to go on.

    Hi. Gary,
    I would love the same thing,   I feel they put too much metal in my neck, I broke   C1. C2.  The reason they did
    it was it was a critical area. But to have a. Dr. Take it out now I can't find one.
    they say no issue it's working good enough and is. Safe.
    Taking some out would definitely give me more mobility.
    If. I could find one. I'd do it in a heartbeat. Any. Drs. Out there just let me know.

    Hello gary1966 !
    As stated above, more information would help with responses from members with shared experiences.
    Reading***New member's guidelines/checklist****could be helpful in knowing what you might want  to share.
    You can find by using search, upper right on page.

     And as pointed out above, it is against forum rules to use names of doctors or facilities.
    We do have ....Find a doctor...and Find a facility... on page for you to check in your location.
