Spinal fusion surgery is major surgery that can cause long-term complications for patients. Even though 38,000 patients undergo spinal fusion surgery every year, risks include paraplegia, quadriplegia, and peripheral nerve deficit. Implant failure can also occur, such as breaks in the implant, piercing of the spinal canal, and compression of nerve roots. In one study, 21% of adolescent patients required implant removal. More than 50% of treated patients have experienced implant failure. Don’t subject yourself to years of pain and discomfort.

While the first visual can imply the subject is about a back or posture, text does all the work from that point on. In addition, one usability issue is the formatting of the text in the first stat — the eye wants to read "Over a has caused between 20 3%-10%..." etc. In western languages we typically read left to right if given the opportunity. This in combination with the confusing design and heavy amount of text (including some typos) means I'd rank this an F, unfortunately.
