2 16 mm ALIF's in. Flatback reconstruction under way.

Just finished anterior. Both discs were completely gone, bone on bone. Had to take a lot of time to gradually jack up and clean out each space. Got 16 mm cage in at both L45 and L5S1. Her disc spaces are back to close to their original height.
Dr. WATTERS, general surgery now closing, then we will turn pt over and do posterior osteotomies and laminectomies and extension instrumentation and fusion.
