Doing well after kyphosis revision extension fusion - video

I got a chance to see Lynn yesterday for her one year follow-up. She is doing just great. She had a multi-level minimally invasive XLIF fusion, complicated by a compression fracture at top of her fusion with a painful progressive kyphosis.

I performed a thoracic pedicle subtraction osteotomy with revision extension instrumentation and fusion. In the included video, she tells how this has dramatically improved her quality of life and posture. You can see the before and after xrays in our picture together yesterday.

Lynn gave her enthusiastic permission to share this photo and short video with all of you.
