← Back Omari S. | Neuromuscular Scoliosis

Omari was diagnosed at the age of 15 and came to Dr. Vitale for a second opinion in regards to his scoliosis curve that was already in a surgical range. He also had back pain and hip pain. He had a 94 degree curve preoperatively and underwent a posterior spinal fusion and instrumentation from T2 to the pelvis. This was also done with a plastic surgery closure to decrease the chance of infection.

He had excellent correction of his curve and returned to all of his preoperative activities. We followed him for a couple of years after the surgery and he did very well without any issues.
