Hey Clinic Jan 7 '08 AM Surgery
Patricia had L2-S1 instrumentation and fusion done 10 yrs ago, and now has terrible spinal claudication and back and leg pain with severe degeneration, spondylolisthesis and stenosis above her old fusion.
This morning I helped her by decompressing the compressed nerves, and stabilizing the spine 3 levels above the old fusion with instrumentation and bone graft. The old hardware and bone stimulator were removed.
Her preop studies and intra-op X Ray are shown.
She did well with surgery, and will be up and around tomorrow.
