My Lumbar Spine Surgery

(Warning: the info below is not wussie compatible)

This is an MRI image of my Grade 2-3 Spondylolisthesis. Note the misalignment of the L4 and L5 vertebrae and the pinched spinal cord.
                                         




This is part of what they fixed it with, except that I have a triple decker that fuses L4, L5 and S1:
                       




This is an X-ray of me taken four months after surgery with some bone removed, some hardware added, a bone graft placed, L4/L5 in correct alignment and the pain gone! Dr. Stephen Theiss and the terrific staff at The University of Alabama in Birmingham Medical Center are a Godsend.
