Can I get a nice correction of my rib hump and feel better with less pain after scoliosis surgery? Last clinic 2013.

More patients we saw in clinic just today!!   
Dr. Lloyd Hey -- Hey Clinic for Scoliosis and Spine Surgery.  

Amanda, in her low  20's, from Charleston, SC looking great, and doing well on her 1 year anniversary.

16 yo Tandra and her mom here about 6 months after her scoliosis surgery looking very straight and very happy!

Teen Olivia "graduates" from Hey Clinic with a great posture.  

18 yo Corey, now 1 year postop from AIS scoliosis surgery doing great lifting weights, doing well in college, and no pain.  Family thankful as shown in video below.

New 13 yo scoliosis I saw today with progressive thoracolumbar curve and trunk shift.  No brace.  Will observe.

She's got a very large thoracolumbar hump on scoliometer, and her hip is "sticking out" quite a bit with trunk shift.

David's preop MRI showing his pinched spinal cord.  He could barely stand out of his wheelchair.  

David now walking and standing up straight 3 months after having pressure taken off his spinal cord.
David shares his story of thoracic disc herniations and progressive leg weakness, surgery and recovery

This new 13 yo patient has small lumbar curve, but it is causing a large trunk shift to the left, and quite a bit of back pain. Treating it conservatively for now.
