    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.

Crazy. surgeon was very excited after, let me know it all went smoothly and my spine was strong andflexible. xrayys this morning show 47 degree postop curve and instrumentation looks good, screwsin all vertebrae xcept one thatg ot a hook.
