Princess Eugenie looks absolutely stunning in her wedding dress. Thank you for using your platform to help raise awareness for scoliosis and the beauty within.
“The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis,” the palace said in a statement. #Scoliosis#ScoliosisAwareness
We are constantly told by patients who are perhaps misinformed or uninformed, that spinal fusions are "terrible" or "worst ever" or "to be avoided at all cost" because too often they are told of someone who had bad outcomes from the surgery a long ago who anecdotally said it did not help in their recovery or problems. There are so many things that are so wrong in this stigmatisation.
1. Technology - spine surgery is currently experiencing a renaissance and embracing new technologies to assist in doing things better
2. Minimally Invasive Surgeries - disappearing quickly the traditional big open posterior surgeries to treat degenerative spine disorders
3. Understanding - there is greater focus than ever before on the knowledge of spine disorders and biomechanics of the human spine as well as treatment outcomes
When spine fusion is done right, the result is life changing for people; it not only reaches their physical pain and improves their function but it actually enriches and revitalises their entire life, like the story of the greatest golfer in the history of the game....Tiger Woods.
Dr. Choi attended the North American Spine Society in LA, USA last month to gain some valuable insights into emerging technologies and advanced methods in better treating spinal patients. He was also involved in attending the launch of the new Pulse System (Artificial Intelliegence Platform for Spine Surgery from NuVasive). Some exciting and innovative application of robotics, AI, internet, machine learning etc are shaping spinal surgery worldwide.
