VSI Scoliosis Patient’s Success Story Featured on WUSA9
Watch below as Spine Surgeon Dr. Good discusses Barbara Jones' medical diagnosis and the most advanced and effective treatment option he chose to resolve her pain and improve her quality of life, safely and effectively! After undergoing a scoliosis surgery (fused multiple levels of her thoracic spine) as a teenager, the levels below her spinal fusion developed a complicated situation where the discs began to wear and tear and the spine started to twist causing the scoliosis. She also developed a pinched nerve and the ability to stand up straight. Dr. Good performed scoliosis reconstructive surgery with an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF).
Three Medical Goals for Barbara's Spine Surgery:
1. Unpinch the nerves to stop nerve damage
2. Fix the spinal instability
3. Realign her spine so she can stand up straight
