Little Quinna w/ Rett's Syndrome Postop from Scoliosis Instrumentation and Fusion

Quinna Preop
Quinna X-Ray Today at Hey Clinic
I just left the exam room with little Quinna, who is growing like a weed!  Her surgery blog entry can be found by clicking here, and her 3 month Postop Blog can be found by clicking here.  We did scoliosis surgery for her a few months ago, and she is doing just great.  She now can sit up straight in her wheelchair,  is smiling widely, and does not appear to be having any back pain.  Her postop X-Rays look quite good.  This is  good example of a younger child, even with neurologic involvement, can sometimes be treated with definitive instrumentation and fusion rather than growing rods or Shilla.
