Oct 22 Hey Clinic Surgery 82 yo with 2 level spondylolisthesis, scoliosis and severe stenosis

This afternoon we helped an 82 yo woman with progressive leg pain, and back pain and trouble standing or walking for more than just a couple minutes.
She had a collapsing scoliosis with 2 level severe spondylolisthesis with severe stenosis.
She underwent a L2-5 decompression and fusion this afternoon, and is doing well now postoperatively.
She will be up walking tomorrow.
