They couldn't say anything about the time of surgery though. My main contact so far is apparently off for a leave of absence Aug-Dec, so I hope the surgery will be scheduled either before or after this period. I really want to have this guy doing the surgery on me.
Exciting! I hope you get your date sooner rather than later and with the surgeon you prefer.
I was diagnosed with Scheuermann's Kyphosis at age 16. I had an 80-degree thoracolumbar kyphosis and mild scoliosis. My posterior fusion surgery was performed by Dr. Sethi in Seattle on Earth Day 2014.
It reduced my kyphosis to 50 degrees and my scoliosis to about zero.
