Spinal fusion is the most common surgery to correct severe scoliosis. For some patients it means freedom from a brace they may have been wearing. Within a few months after surgery, you could find yourself enjoying normal activities again.
A revolution has taken place over the past few decades to help both spinal correction and the recovery process for patients with scoliosis – a condition in which the spine develops one or more abnormal, side-to-side curves.
When observation and bracing have failed to treat the spinal curvature, spinal surgery can be an option for stopping the progression of the curve and correcting the spinal deformity.
Nothing can replace a conversation with your doctor. But we do have answers to a few common questions about scoliosis and scoliosis surgery.
