Can Scoliosis be fixed with minimally invasive microsurgery?

Here's a real short video on YouTube I shot yesterday with a 29 yo woman who has a 19 degree scoliosis with severe radiating left leg pain, secondary to large L45 disc herniation on the left.  In response to the pain, she's developed a significant scoliosis and lean to the right. (She was psyched to be on YouTube and Blog --- received her permission to post)

We'll be fixing her sciatica and scoliosis soon with minimally invasive microdiscectomy surgery!

Meanwhile, our 18 yo who had the revision scoliosis surgery is recovering well upstairs, except for some nausea and borderline ileus, which he had with his last surgery done elsewhere.  He is psyched about his new posture and chest shape, which he can tell is significantly better, both front and back.

Did a huge revision scoliosis surgery today on a lady from Florida, who had a Harrington Rod fusion years ago now with adjacent level failure, kyphosis and severe pain.  Her surgery went well.
