Hi all, I know only a few people can answer this. What was your experience? I am a bit taken aback this morning. According to an article from Feb. 2019, Hospital for Special Surgery research, my spinal fusion is considered a risk factor, for THR, right along with neuromuscular problems. “.....Dr. Sculco. "We may find that precautions don't make sense for any of our patients, but we need to look at in a stepwise fashion." Risk factors include neuromuscular issues, such as stroke, Parkinson's disease and lumbar spine fusions.” I was under the impression that as long as they could compensate for the change in angle and movement of the pelvis, as a result of the fusion, my THR post-op treatment and result should be as good as anyone else’s post -op treatment and result.
