What Is Scoliosis Correction Surgery?

Scoliosis correction surgery is an option when nonsurgical treatments do not relieve pain or symptoms. Scoliosis surgery is often recommended when the scoliosis curve measures over 45-50° degrees. If scoliosis continues to get worse and bracing is not working for the patient scoliosis surgery may be considered to lessen the curve, relived the pain and prevent it from worsening in the future. If the condition left untreated, the large curves can cause further health problems to the heart and lungs in the future. The spine become harder if the patient waits too long for the treatment and this could lead to a riskier surgery.
