fracture of T12 normally requires pedicle screws and a construct from at least T11 through L1. The post-operative period that I generally use can be found under “Pre and post-op” under “recovery information by surgery” and then “lumbar fusion”. This can vary depending upon the type of fracture.

I require a hard shell brace for three months to prevent further stress of the surgery.
