Scoliosis Correction

Scoliosis is a spinal deformity where an abnormal curvature in the back is present. Often, this type of deformity will be a curvature to the right or left and sometimes will include a rotational aspect of the spine. This type of deformity occurs in adults and adolescents.

In certain patient scenarios, scoliosis reconstructive surgery is discussed to help improve symptoms of pain, numbness or tingling. In other scenarios this type of deformity correction is discussed after the scoliosis has progressed to a certain degree with the goal to halt any further progression of this abnormal curvature.

Scoliosis and deformity corrective surgeries help to realign the spine in patients with abnormal curvatures.

The goals of treatment are:

  • To slow the curve’s progression
  • Correct the curve
  • Prevent related health issues
  • Prevent or delay the need for surgery.

Symptoms of Scoliosis:

  • Head tilt
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Chest wall and back asymmetry
  • Asymmetry of shoulder
  • Asymmetry of scapula, waistline, or hips
  • Rib prominence
  • Rotated torso
  • Uneven muscle development
  • Uneven hips creating leg length discrepancy

Contact a pain specialist if you have some of these symptoms.
