This is a 53 year old female with severe back pain and shooting pain down her legs whenever she walks for more than 2 to 3 minutes. She failed all types of conservative management including spinal injections, physical therapy and acupuncture.
Her MRI revealed a Spondylolisthesis (when one bone slips in front of the other) of L5 over S1. Her post-operative Cat Scan revealed a partial reduction of the slipped bones with placement of a spacer between the bones.
She felt immediate leg pain relief in the recovery room and feels fantastic now 6 weeks after her surgery.
