14 yo Breanna gets her Double Curve Adolescent Scoliosis Straightened today with Dr. Hey

Breanna did very well with her scoliosis surgery today.
Her estimated blood loss (EBL) was 325 cc.
Surgical time was 3 hours 45 minutes.
Levels fused:  T5-L3.
Correction:  More than 90%.
Evoked Potential Motor and Sensory:  Actually improved with scoliosis correction.
Technique:  thoracic and lumbar pedicle screws.

Breanna was resting comfortably this evening with her mom in the room overnight.
Tomorrow she will start to get up and around!
Her mom and dad were both very excited to see the pre vs. post X-Ray, which we actually taped to Breanna’s window in her private room so she could see the big change when she got to the room this afternoon.
