15 yo gymnast young gentleman with rapidly progressive congenital scoliosis fixed this morning
His surgery today went very well. I did special 3D preoperative CT analysis, as well as intraoperative BrainLab 3D Navigation to help with his complex anatomy. Surgical time was a little over 4 hours. Estimated blood loss 900 cc. No complications. Got a really nice correction.
Family was very happy and wanted me to share this with all of you. We'll be getting him back to sports as soon as he feels able.
