Brief Summary:
To establish the relationship in the five critical X-ray time points during multilevel posterior column osteotomies (MPCO) spinal deformity realignment in patients with adult spinal deformity and to follow the participants longitudinally to examine any follow-up X-rays and clinical data to compare to the post-operative standing scan and pre-operative data.

Detailed Description:
Studies in adult spinal deformity (ASD) have found that the presence of sagittal imbalance directly correlates with worsening quality of life. Multilevel posterior column osteotomies (MPCOs) is a technique that can provide correction to adult spinal deformity. MPCOs can be utilized for revision surgery as an alternative to 3-column osteotomies and have the ability to aggregate large amount of lordosis segmentally. The success of the MPCO technique largely depends on radiographs taken during these surgeries to aid the surgeon in establishing the best screw and rod placement and making intraoperative adjustments. Imaging plays a vital role in evaluating hardware positioning and assessing hardware integrity as well as evaluating potential complication. The investigator plans to evaluate and establish the relationship in the five critical X-ray time points (preoperative standing and supine, intraoperative pre- and post-correction, and postoperative standing films) during MPCO spinal deformity realignment and measure pre- to post-operative outcome longitudinally. The investigator will investigate lumbar lordosis and sagittal and coronal alignment at those 5 time points and examine the relationship between pre-op, intra-op, and post-op images to understand impact of the MPCO technique and examine expected outcome to final outcome. Additionally, if the O-Arm 2D long film scanner is utilized during the surgery, the investigator will analyze that film and compare it to the other X-rays taken.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the Change from Baseline Sagittal Cobb angles to Post-Surgical Sagittal Cobb angles [ Time Frame: Baseline through end of Hospital Stay, an average of 6 weeks ]
    Data analysis will involve analysis of the change of segmentally measured Sagittal Cobbs angles in the presurgical baseline, intra-operative and post-surgical X-rays

  2. Evaluate the Change from Baseline Total Lumbar Lordosis to Post-Surgical Total Lumbar Lordosis [ Time Frame: Baseline through end of Hospital Stay, an average of 6 weeks ]
    Data analysis will involve analysis of the change of measured total lumbar lordosis in the presurgical baseline, intra-operative and post-surgical X-rays


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of the change of Sagittal Cobb angles in post-operative X-rays taken at follow-up appointments for the first year post surgery [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    Data analysis will involve analysis of the post-surgical X-rays utilizing the Sagittal Cobb angles measured segmentally

  2. Evaluation of the change of total lumbar lordosis in post-operative X-rays taken at follow-up appointments for the first year post surgery [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    Data analysis will involve analysis of the post-surgical X-rays utilizing the angle for lumbar lordosis


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. PROMIS-29 (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System-29 question) questionnaire [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The PROMIS-29 will be given to assess change over time in global physical, mental and social health.

  2. Oswestry Disability Index [ Time Frame: Through Study Completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The Oswestry Disability Index will be given to assess change over time in functional disability

  3. SRS-22r (Scoliosis Research Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire) [ Time Frame: Through Study Completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The SRS-22r (Scoliosis Research Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire) will be given to assess change in the health related quality of life specific to spinal deformity

  4. Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Low Back and/or Leg [ Time Frame: Through Study Completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) for Low Back and/or Leg will be given to assess changes in pain level.
