Dr. Hey again...

Fused apparently for pain. Or maybe to avoid more progression given what I understand in some of Hey's earlier comments.

I think this is one surgeon who will consider fusing smaller curves in the right circumstances unlike some other surgeons given the testimonials. I hope he publishes the outcomes as he might be able to make a case for earlier fusion in the right circumstances.
