TO THE READERSHIP: An error appeared in the article by Carroll et al. (Carroll AH, Dowlati E, Molina E, et al. Does minimally invasive spine surgery improve outcomes in the obese population? A retrospective review of 1442 degenerative lumbar spine surgeries. J Neurosurg Spine. 2021;35[4]:460-470).

Due to a production error, the order of the footnotes in Table 4 was incorrect. The corrected table appears here.
