16 yo Holly straightened up this morning with her severe trunk shift and lumbar scoliosis
Extra care was also taken to help with her trunk shift with fine adjustments to our correction while doing rod insertion. Some Smith-Peterson osteotomies also helped to improve her correction and ensure proper lordosis.
I think she will be very happy with her new posture!
Estimated Blood Loss was only 75 cc. No blood transfused.
Surgical time 2.5 hours, with fusion levels T11-L4.
Our young lady Ashley, who had the big kyphosis we fixed last Thursday did great over the weekend, and is heading home this morning. Dad thinks she is about 3 inches taller!
