Scoiliosis correction surgery: Scoliosis is the sideways bending or curvature of the spine. Typically present in children and young adults. Those who have curve beyond 45 degrees are considered for corrective surgery.
The surgery involve complex multiple procedures like corrective osteotomy of spine at one or multiple level or vertebral resection. Metallic screws and rods are used to correct the remaining curvature and hold it in correct position until a bone graft, placed at the time of surgery, consolidates and create permanent rigid fusion. The surgery is done under continuous neuromonitoring so as not to damage the spinal cord or nerve during the correction.
With the use of latest advancements and instruments this surgery has become very safe in our expert hands and gives very gratifying results.
