Does scoliosis surgery really help teenagers and adults to feel better about themselves and their posture, and ensure better quality of life?

We had great clinic yesterday, with lots of thankful 6 week postop visits from our pre-Christmas scoliosis "blitz" we had.  It was so great to see so many precious teens and their parents back for follow-up with kids back to school, looking great and feeling great.  We've also done a bunch of revision scoliosis and kyphosis surgeries recently, including some folks who traveled quite a ways to come to Hey Clinic.  Their stories are below as well and on our YouTube Channel.  One patient named Matt shared how upset he was going through high school very self-conscious of his posture.  Now at age 24, he is standing up straight with less pain, 7 years after his original surgery, which was in part complicated by some collapse above and below his old fusion.

Gotta get to bed, but enjoy some of these stories and pictures below.
All the videos below were shot this past Friday at Hey Clinic, except Matt's, which was shared with me from the week before.  You can see why I love my job, getting to be a part of these precious family's journeys through a crucial period.
