The mean postoperative NDI score was 7.3%, and the overall patient satisfaction rate was 93% ( Table 3 ).

as well, suggesting that patient satisfaction may also be affected by location. In 2012, Borah et al. analyzed the effects of hospital characteristics on value-based purchasing score and found that hospital size and geographical location significantly affected the scores. 2 McFarland et al. found that larger hospitals are more likely to attain lower scores. 8 Of note, the variance in patient satisfaction scores may not be related to the hospital location itself, but rather due to multiple other factors such as staff, absence of trainees, and hospital logistics

with a brace experienced reduced or limited sexual activities as compared with the control group, even though these young women with scoliosis had no neurological dysfunction. Berg et al. 5 demonstrated improvement in sexual satisfaction after surgery in patients with chronic low-back pain who had undergone a posterior lumbar fusion or total disc replacement, and this improvement correlated with a reduction in low-back pain after surgery. Akbaş et al. 2 reported significant improvement in sexual life after surgery for lumbar disc herniation at the 2-month follow

(PCS) and the Mental Component Summary (MCS) scores. The SRS-22 provides a total score and multiple subdomains, including Activity, Pain, Appearance, Mental, and Satisfaction. Full-length 36-in free-standing anteroposterior and lateral spine radiographs were obtained at baseline and 1- and 2-year follow-up. Radiographic analysis was performed at 1 site (New York University) with extensive experience using validated software (Spineview, ENSAM). 4 Cervical radiographic measures included C2-7 SVA (C-2 plumb line relative to C-7), C2-7 lordosis (CL), T-1 slope, and T

measures included the Oswestry Disability Index, SF-36, and 22-item SRS Outcomes Questionnaire (SRS-22r). Two standard summary scores were calculated based on the SF-36, the Physical Component Summary and the Mental Component Summary, and the ASD frailty index was calculated. 15 , 16 The SRS-22r provides a total score and multiple subdomain scores including those for activity, pain, appearance, mental, and satisfaction. A numeric rating scale (NRS) score ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (most unbearable pain) was collected for back and leg pain separately. Statistics and

Results: With independent t-test group without discography preoperative had ODI P 0.002 between patients with DDD and other generator of the pain while the postoperative had P 0.433. Preoperative SFPF had P 0.001 but postoperative P were 0.360. VAS preoperative had P 0.953 and postoperative 0.003. In a group with discography ODI and SFPF preoperative and postoperative had P<0.001. VAS preoperative had P 0.306 and
