What is scoliosis surgery?

Scoliosis surgery is a procedure performed to correct an abnormal curvature of the spine, known as scoliosis. It involves straightening the spine and stabilizing it to prevent further progression of the curvature. Scoliosis surgery typically involves the use of metal rods, screws, and bone grafts to realign the spine into a more normal position.

Why would someone need to have scoliosis surgery?

Scoliosis surgery may be recommended for individuals whose spinal curvature is severe, progressive, or causing significant pain and discomfort. The goals of scoliosis surgery are to improve spinal alignment, enhance functionality, and prevent the progression of the curvature.

What conditions can scoliosis surgery address?

Scoliosis surgery can help address various conditions, including:

  • Severe adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

  • Adult degenerative scoliosis

  • Neuromuscular scoliosis (caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy)

  • Congenital scoliosis (present at birth)

  • Syndromic scoliosis (associated with certain genetic syndromes)

To determine if scoliosis surgery is appropriate for a specific case, a thorough evaluation and consultation with our medical team is necessary.

Requirements & Evaluation: scoliosis spine surgery

Before undergoing scoliosis surgery, individuals will undergo a comprehensive evaluation, which may include a physical examination, spinal imaging, and a review of medical history. Our medical team will assess the severity of the spinal curvature, evaluate the potential benefits and risks of surgery, and discuss the individual's goals and expectations.

Different Types of scoliosis surgery
There are various surgical approaches and techniques available for scoliosis surgery, including:

  1. Posterior Approach: This technique involves accessing the spine from the back and using metal rods and screws to correct the curvature.

  2. Anterior Approach: In some cases, scoliosis surgery may require accessing the spine from the front of the body to correct the curvature.

  3. Minimally Invasive Surgery: This technique involves making smaller incisions and using specialized instruments to perform the surgery with reduced tissue trauma and faster recovery.

The choice of technique will depend on the individual's specific case, including the severity and type of scoliosis, as well as the recommendation of our experienced medical team.


surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the chosen technique will be used to correct the curvature of the spine. Metal rods, screws, and bone grafts are utilized to realign and stabilize the spine. The incisions are carefully closed, and patients are closely monitored during their recovery.

Before the Procedure

Before scoliosis surgery, individuals will have thorough pre-operative instructions provided by our medical team. These instructions may include fasting for a specific period, ceasing certain medications or supplements that could interfere with the surgery, and arranging for transportation to and from the surgical facility. It is crucial to follow these instructions diligently to ensure a safe and successful surgery.

After the Procedure

Following scoliosis surgery, individuals will undergo a period of close observation to monitor their immediate recovery. Our medical team will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including guidelines for pain management, wound care, and activities to avoid during the initial recovery period. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to promote proper healing and minimize complications.

What kind of follow-up care will I have during recovery?

During the recovery period, individuals will have scheduled follow-up appointments with our medical team. These appointments allow for close monitoring of the healing progress, evaluation of spinal alignment, and adjustment of any necessary post-operative care. Our team will provide personalized guidance and support throughout the recovery process.

Risk & Benefits

As with any surgical procedure, scoliosis surgery carries both benefits and risks. The potential benefits of scoliosis surgery may include:

  • Improved spinal alignment and posture

  • Pain relief

  • Enhanced functionality and quality of life

  • Prevention of further progression of the curvature

However, it is essential to consider potential risks and complications, such as infection, blood loss, nerve injury, or spinal implant failure. Our experienced medical team will discuss these potential risks and benefits with individuals during their consultation.


The recovery time after scoliosis surgery varies depending on the individual's specific case, the surgical technique used, and their healing rate. Generally, individuals are encouraged to gradually return to daily activities, including school or work, within a few weeks to months after surgery. Physical therapy and regular follow-up appointments will be a part of the recovery process, allowing the surgical team to monitor progress and provide ongoing support.

FAQs Related to Scoliosis spine surgery

Who needs scoliosis surgery?

The decision to undergo scoliosis surgery is typically based on several factors, including the severity of the curve, the potential for the curve to progress, and the impact of the curve on the patient's quality of life. Generally, surgery is recommended for individuals with a curve greater than 40 or 50 degrees, particularly if the curve is continuing to progress despite other treatments like bracing.

Is scoliosis surgery safe?

Like any surgical procedure, scoliosis surgery involves some risks. However, with advances in technology and techniques, it has become a safe and effective treatment for scoliosis. The specific risks and benefits of scoliosis surgery will depend on the patient's individual case, and our medical team will discuss these factors in detail with the patient during the evaluation process.

How long will the scoliosis surgery?

The length of scoliosis surgery can vary depending on several factors, including the severity of the curve, the technique used, and the experience of the surgeon. Generally, scoliosis surgery can take anywhere from 4-10 hours to complete.

What is the average hospital stay for a patient?

The average hospital stay after scoliosis surgery is typically around 3-5 days, although this can vary depending on a variety of factors including the patient's age, overall health, and the specifics of the surgical procedure.

Are life-long medicines necessary after scoliosis surgery?

Many patients will require pain management medication in the immediate post-operative period, but lifelong medication use is not typically necessary after scoliosis surgery. However, individual cases may vary, and patients should consult with their healthcare provider for specific recommendations based on their unique medical history and surgical experience.

Does a person have high infection rates and lead a very restricted life after scoliosis surgery?

While all surgical procedures carry some risk of infection, the risk of infection after scoliosis surgery is relatively low. After surgery, patients may be advised to limit certain activities or movements in order to allow for proper healing, but these restrictions are typically temporary and will be lifted as healing progresses. With proper care and rehabilitation, patients can return to most normal activities.

What lifestyle changes are associated with scoliosis surgery?

After scoliosis surgery, patients may experience some temporary lifestyle changes related to activity limitations and recovery, but in the long term, most patients will be able to resume normal daily activities without issue. Rehabilitation and physical therapy may be recommended to help the patient regain strength and range of motion as they continue to recover. The medical team will provide guidance and support throughout the recovery process to ensure the best possible outcome.
