I thought this was kind of an interesting website... It has animations of various spinal surgeries, including scoliosis.

I'm just trying it now with 90210, cos of the cheesy teenage soap of that name :D Will let you know if it works!

ETA: woo, it worked!!! Also, you don't need to put in a valid email address to access this, if you're worried about your email addy ending up on a spammers ;-)

This is BRILLIANT!!! It only shows one particular sort of instrumentation insertion, but it's utterly fascinating nonetheless. It's so well done! Wow, nice find Blair :D

LOL Toni! 90210.... That gave me a chuckle. I pulled an e-mail out of my bum to use too, just in case. Worked just fine.

That was really cool! Although the thing at the end that said it can reduce it by fifty percent was off... according to that, my curve would still be over 20 degrees. But I guess that's one of those different for everyone things. It was really interesting!

Marti, what was your before and after curve measurement? It sounds like you got a good correction.

14th November 2004, 10:49 PM
mine was more then 50% too I started off at like high 60s or low 70s and now I am 15

14th November 2004, 11:28 PM
yeah, mine was about 45 and now it's practically nothing.

15th November 2004, 12:06 AM
Mine was 90 and now it's 55 ish. But I'm pretty happy...

15th November 2004, 12:17 AM
thats good joy.....mine r 80 each so i hope to have about 40 or 50 after

My surgeon told me to expect only about 50% correction as well. But it seems like more and more lately, they are able to get just amazing amounts of correction... Like Jenn's 103%... Or my close to 100% in the fused part of the curve (still a bit curvy below my fusion, and it seems like it's increasing/settling slightly)

15th November 2004, 02:37 AM
I got exactly 50%
