"Flat Back" Friends and Co-Workers Meet up by chance postop and straight up at Hey Clinic Friday

We had a lot of great visits at Hey Clinic on Friday, including Cathy, who was back for her postop visit from anterior-posterior reconstruction for flat back syndrome below her old Harrington rod fusion. She’s doing very well and it was good to see her back.

As I was opening the door to see Cathy, one of my other patients named Jennifer was walking the hall, and gave Cathy a big “hello”! It turns out that Jennifer knows Cathy as a co-worker at American Express. After Cathy did well with her flatback surgery, Cathy recommended Hey Clinic to her friend, who also suffered with flatback also due to an old non-instrumented fusion done many years before for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

So we ended up having an unexpected very happy reunion there, and actually got all three of us together for a photo together. It is amazing how often patients find us through friends, family, and co-workers.

Both young ladies have very nice standing postures, and are getting along with a better quality of life.
