Candice looking great after scoliosis surgery

We showed Candice’s back a few months ago.  She had a very severe case of hypokyphosis with her thoracic scoliosis, which caused her lung volumes to be quite small, and also caused her chest to look quite “sunken in.”
I saw her back in clinic on Friday along with a bunch of other scoliosis postoperative patients, and she looks and feels great!
Her chest is now quite symmetric, and has the more proper shape.
She is finishing up school as speech therapist, and has a bright future ahead of her!

Take care, Candice!
