64 y woman sp laminectomy elsewhere w 70 degree scoliosis fixed today

T5-Iliac wing instrumentation and fusion w lumbar revision laminectomies and osteotomies.
Surgical time:  4 hour 24 min.
Complic: none.
This guest was sent to us by Duke Cardiologist Dr. Blazing who wanted her surgery done quickly and effectively with lower blood loss to decrease her risk since she had significant comorbidities.

She sailed through surgery very well and should feel much better now. She was in agony preop.

Thank God for Surgeons like Dr Hey. He did not hesitate when it came to doing surgery on my back. He and his staff are the greatest.
