Flat back becomes beautiful lumbar lordosis

Everything went great.
At beginning of posterior surgery, her low back and buttock was flat like a washboard.

Now, she has a visible "sway" in that lower area and lordosis is improved by 30 degrees.

Ebl: 925 cc total for anterior and posterior.
Blood transfused: none.
Complications none.
Surgical time: around 5 hrs

It is totally cool to watch these folks get up Postop day 1: some are moved to tears when they can experience standing up straight, usually with significantly less pain.
