Certainly not only for first time. I know a mother whose daughter probably will need another surgery, but if it would be necessary, she wants a non fusion option now. She asked in the group and it seems that would be possible.

I wish I had seen these before I had my fusion surgery 2 weeks ago. Being 18, that looks very attractive compared to what I now have.
I'm glad they're making improvements to these surgeries, it's amazing what they can do.
