14 yo Rachel back for her 1 year postop visit after straightening her thoracolumbar scoliosis
I just finished seeing Rachel and her mom Jodi at Hey Clinic for Rachel's 1 year postop visit for straightening up her thoracolumbar adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. She is doing just great, and loves her new posture. Her before and after X-Rays are shown on the left here.
She then gave me a really gorgeous small wooden box wrapped in a fancy bow as a gift. I opened it up and found a gorgeous pen inside, made out of Bethlehem Olive Wood, hand made by her grandfather!! I have deep appreciation for wood work, since I used to do a lot of wood work growing up, including antique boat restoration with varnish, etc.
Wow, what a gorgeous pen, and fine handiwork!!! Many thanks Grandpa S for your wonderful gift through Rachel and her family! -- Dr. Lloyd Hey, Hey Clinic for Scoliosis and Spine Surgery
