27 yo "Whole New Life" after Scoliosis Surgery

This past Friday I saw this 27 yo woman back for follow-up. She had a huge thoracolumbar curve preop, and had significant pain, and very severe posture / self image issues.

She is now doing great, and told me that the scoliosis surgery has allowed her to start "a whole new life!"

Here I am pictured with her and her sister. A very joyous graduation day!

It is always a blessing when we can catch these curves when people are younger, where the scoliosis can be fixed with a smaller surgery, preserving motion segments and making for an easier recovery, and many more years to enjoy a better posture.
