John gave his permission to share this with our blog readers after his recent postop visit at Hey Clinic. He had a very painful 88 degree progressive kyphosis, and actually had chronic bruising over his spinous processes over his mid-thoracic area preop. His curve was quite stiff during surgery, requiring multiple osteotomies, and some extra finesse to get him straightened up nicely so his kyphosis is now in the normal range, as shown in the photograph.
Thanks for sharing, John, and wishing you a wonderful spring to enjoy your new posture and new quality of life!
