Failed 2 level dis replacements fixed today

This 50 yo gentleman had L45 and L5S1 disc replacements done in
Germany and had some improvement for about a year. Since then, quality
of life has gone to zero w severe spinal claudication and pain.

Today we did posterior L3-Iliac wing instrumentation w L34 TLIF and
revision 3 level laminectomy w removal of spinal cord stimulator.
Surgical time: 4 hrs.
Complications: none.
