Gentleman with myelopathy, adjacent level stenosis T12-L1 helped today

Just got out of surgery on gentleman who had L1-Iliac wing fusion done about 5 years ago, who has had progressive myelopathy with stenosis just above his fusion, with some proximal junctional kyphosis.

His surgery today went well, with decompression of spinal cord, and extension of instrumentation up to T10 using less invasive T10 fixation to help prevent PJK.

Just met with patient's wife, and went over X-Rays.  She wanted me to post this to the blog asap so her son Derek in Seattle could take a look!

Derek:  your dad did great!
