My husband had surgery for sheuermann's kyphosis disease. He had t-1 thorugh L-2 fused. He got a staph infection and had his second surgery on My question: Has anyone had this surgery? I would like to talk with anyone who could give us clues on what to expect later on.

I was recently diagnosed with Scheuermann's kyphosis and several surgeons have suggested having T2-T12 fused. I'm a 26 year old healthy male. I don't have much to offer regarding your post, but I am curious about your husband's situation. How old is he, when was he diagnosed, how many surgical opinions did he get before the surgery, etc.?

If you want to find some published journal articles on infections and spinal fusion I suggest you try the following link: Medline abstracts on PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=pubmed&cmd=Display&dopt=pubmed_pubmed&from_uid=12901546)

The article abstracts are free online, but you will most likely have to go to a medical library to view the full article text.
