Spinal Fusion Surgery

The goal of spinal surgery for scoliosis is to fuse the vertebrae so the spine cannot bend and to correct deformity, effectively the fused part becomes one single solid bone. The doctor will try to correct the curve by 50 percent or more. Metal rods are used as part of the operation as well.





Despite Spinal Fusion surgery being widely recommended by Orthopedics, it comes with risks and we advise each patient to consider those risks. Researches have concluded that there is no medical necessity for spinal fusion surgery in most cases rather it is viewed as a cosmetic surgery. We urge you to understand the implications of the this option before going forward.
