Uganda Mission – August 16th 4:30pm

Uganda Mission – August 16th 4:30pm

Spectacular case! All went well and we achieved a tremendous correction. As I had expected this was not TB but a congenital kyphosis at L1/L2 with a wedge vertebrae. The team was all excited about the case, everyone was involved and learned something new! Lori learned that Gellpie retractors were designed to fit around a 3 year old bottom perfectly. John learned how to throw a double tie in an incision less than 2 inches. Corie realized that she must update her iPod music to the surgeon’s taste. Sherron affirmed that I mumble while operating, and Brian now knows that sublaminar wires are your friend.

Thanks!
