No more hump on back!

This morning we fixed Brittany's scoliosis. She's 22, grew up with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and has large R thoracic curve w pain and very large R rib hump.
I fixed it today using our latest "double rod persuader technique, and the large R rib hump looks and feels like it is gone!
Here is picture of her back just as we were finishing the final subcuticular closure.
Surgical time: 3.5 hrs
Procedure: T5-L1 pedicle instrumentation and fusion.
EBL: 800.
Cell saver: 360 cc returned.
Complications: none.
