L1 laminectomy this afternoon for gentleman w clumsy legs

After finishing our big kyphoscoliosis reconstruction around 1:30, I talked to very thankful husband, grabbed quick lunch, then saw 12 yo girl in clinic w scoliosis which has progressed frome 26 to 44 degrees in 6 months. Nice family from Wilmington NC.

After that, I went back over to OR, where we just helped this man with severe leg clumsiness with a minimally invasive lumbar decompression laminectomy. You can see the severe stenosis on the mri above.

A very good day.
