I had severe scoliosis and was nervous about getting spinal fusion. The surgery went smoothly and I was released from the hospital after six days. Three weeks later I was able to go camping with my family, play my accordion, and even dance a little bit. It has been ten months since my surgery and I have been in physical therapy. I am now dancing ballet at my former level, on pointe, and have resumed all my prior activities. I am sooooo happy with the care I received from Dr. Blanco and HSS, thank you!!!
