15 yo gymnast young gentleman with rapidly progressive congenital scoliosis fixed this morning

Just finished surgery to straighten up Trey, a 15 yo gymnast, who has had a rapidly progressive left thoracic curve over this past year, going from 26 to 41 degrees.  He also has a pectus, which may be related.

His surgery today went very well.  I did special 3D preoperative CT analysis, as well as intraoperative BrainLab 3D Navigation to help with his complex anatomy.  Surgical time was a little over 4 hours.  Estimated blood loss 900 cc.  No complications.  Got a really nice correction.

Family was very happy and wanted me to share this with all of you.  We'll be getting him back to sports as soon as he feels able.
