This 66 year old man had two spinal fusions prior to seeing Dr. Babat. His lumbar spine had been fused “flat,” resulting in kyphosis, and the inability to stand up. The bump that can be seen on his back is bone about to poke through the skin. Dr. Babat performed a pedicle subtraction osteotomy. At his 6 month follow-up appointment, he is playing his cane like a guitar! And he had reduced his pain medications by 75%.
