Hi Chet, Just wanted to wish you well with your upcoming surgery. I am having surgery with Dr. Lenke too on 8/14 (70 degrees, T4-Sacrum, 5 osteomities, 2 TLIFs) I hope you are feeling up to posting afterward, Iíd love to have the inside scoop! Iíve been to a few of the top surgeons in NY, but we really liked Dr. Lenke and feel very confident in him. Iím sure you will have the best possible outcome!
