Lots of Scoliosis Experience this Week and over last 9 years at Hey Clinic. Today's Clinic on Twitter @DrLloydHey Realtime.

Went home yesterday after her AIS Surgery, mom and patient thankful
"Thank you for everything, Dr. Hey!"

We have 2 more AIS scoliosis patients going home today, after 2 nights in hospital, no ICU stay, no blood transfusions.  Both families very happy with nursing and physical and occupational therapy care.  

Surgical, as well as clinic and institution/hospital experience and focus on quality control and compassion all add up to a wonderful experience and outcome for patient and family in large majority of families served.

We are just about to celebrate our 9th year as Hey Clinic, plus my nearly 10 years before that at Duke University Medical Center, serving on teaching faculty in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery.  With over 300 spine surgeries per year, the majority of which being deformity-reltated surgeries, we have built a wealth of experience and learning that has enabled us to continue to improve the quality and safety of the care that we deliver.  This has led to many families traveling to see us for the care of their children and adolescents, as well as adult patients with scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis and other conditions including revision deformity surgery.  This is definitely a "team sport" and we continually seek to improve our team delivery of excellent care.  The smiles at the end of the day tell the story, as well as the improved posture which changes lives.

Here are some highlights from today's clinic so far today , including some YouTube testimonials.  We are Tweeting through clinic for those who wish to follow us real-time @drlloydhey.  We only share photos and video with folk's permission, but our guests are usually very willing to share and give thanks.
