← Back Robert B.
17+7-year-old male with Scheuermann’s kyphosis treated elsewhere. Unfortunately, he developed a spine infection requiring instrumentation removal. He presented to us with progressive kyphosis to +115° with pain. We performed a single-stage posterior reconstruction with multiple posterior column osteotomies to restore normal kyphosis. His curve improved from +115° to +47° with correction maintained at 5 years after surgery. He resumed all activities including weightlifting and boxing.
