13 yo 6 week postop adolescent scoliosis doing great back for f/u today

I just saw Rachel and her family back for follow-up.  She is just 6 weeks out from surgery, looking and feeling great.  Patient and parents very happy with her new posture, and her well-healed incision and the great care she received at Duke Raleigh Hospital.

She'll be able to get back into sports including her cheer-leading this fall!

We have several adolescent scoliosis patients recovering postop both at Duke Raleigh and WakeMed Children's Hospital Raleigh, doing well.  3 will be going home today.  Cornell, a 13 yo, had his surgery on Wednesday at WakeMed and is doing great, going home today with two nights in the hospital.
