Today's kyphosis surgery in 16 yo young lady with severe back pain and bothersome deformity.

This young lady has had severe increasing back pain and deformity w 77 degree Scheuermann's Kypohosis. Her hump back posture also made her uncomfortable about her self image at school.

This morning we straightened her up, and her posture looks great.

Surgery: T3-L2 instrumentation and fusion w T10-12 smith petersn osteotomies.
EBL: 500 cc.
Blood transfused: none.
Complications: none.
Surgical time: 4 hour 15 min.

Her pain should be much better as well as her self image when she goes back to school in next 2-4 weeks.
