    Degenerative Scoliosis & XLIF Procedure findings published...

    I don't know if this has been posted somewhere else or not, but ran across it today at my old stomping grounds... getting ready to make my next check-up appointment at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush... He's not my doctor, Dr. DeWald is now that Dr. Hammerberg is full time at Shriner's now.

    Anyway, I thought I would throw it out there.

    Susie Bee, I think Dr. DeWald is probably best for my revision surgery. This was a great post with a ton of good info!
    XLIF/Posterior Surgery 6/16/08. Fused T10-L5 in CA by Dr. Michael Kropf (don't go there unless it's simple, I hear he's at Cedar's now). Very deformed, had revision w/5 PSO's, rods from T-3 to sacrum including iliac screws, all posterior, 5/23/16 with Dr. Purnendu Gupta of Chicago.
