William M.

50+9-year-old male with ankylosing spondylitis and a fixed thoracic hyperkyphosis deformity. He was unable to look forward when standing, thus interfering with walking and other daily activities. He underwent a posterior spinal reconstruction with a lumbar pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) to reshape his lumbar spine into more normal lordosis and thus allow MORE

Jessica M.

Patient presented with severe flat back syndrome and lumbar kyphosis with marked postural imbalance not allowing her to stand upright as well as severe lumbar back pain following several lumbar surgeries with decompressions and an attempted fusion. She underwent a posterior reconstruction with an L2 pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO). Following surgery MORE

Natasha R.

15+10-year-old female presented to us 5 years after a scoliosis fusion with problems related to a proximal junctional kyphosis (PJK) above her instrumentation. She had a severe 130-degree kyphosis from her cervical spine to her proximal thoracic region. She was treated with preoperative halo-gravity traction then a posterior reconstruction with MORE

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 MORE
