Scoliosis Surgery- Best Method to Rectify Spinal Irregularities

By Alexs Subscribe to RSS | June 6th 2012 | Views:

Life is all about complexities, which should ideally should get resolved through carefully studies and thought out solutions. Scoliosis is among such complexities that bring great complications to one’s life. Scoliosis is defined as the irregular formation of the spinal curves that leads to inability in movement and consequently brings severe scoliosis pain.

Most of the patients diagnosed with this deformity are children under the age group of 13-18. Depending upon the age group it is being categorized as under:

• Juvenile scoliosis- children between 04-10 age group

• Adolescent idiopathic Scoliosis- between 10-16 years old children

• Adult idiopathic Scoliosis- affected after the skeletal maturity or growth is completed

• Congenital Scoliosis- spinal defect at the time of birth

• Neuromuscular Scoliosis- associated with neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy, myopathy or spina bifida

Once the symptoms are already being studied by the scoliosis specialist the treatment for this disease immediately follows. It is very essential to get diagnosed at an early stage since once the problem reaches to the maturity, it becomes very tough to treat to bring the normal curvature back.

There are many surgical techniques that can be used to rectify the abnormalities in the curvatures. The main scoliosis procedures are correcting, stabilization and fusion of the curve. Fusion is the joining of the two curves. Surgeons can use different methods of spinal straightening and different ways of implant to keep the spine stable after scoliosis surgery. The type of implant is being decided upon the size, shape and cost of the implant. It also depends upon the age and size of the patient. It is best advised to have a good discussion with an experienced scoliosis specialist before going for a surgery. During the discussions the patient should put some of the questions in front of the surgeon like

• What are the benefits from surgery for scoliosis?

• What are the risks from surgery for scoliosis?

• What techniques will be used for the surgery?

• What devices will be used to keep the spine stable after surgery?

• Where will the incisions be made?

• How straight will the spine be after surgery?

• How long will it take to recover from surgery?

• Is there chronic back pain after surgery for scoliosis?

• Will the patient's growth be limited?

• How flexible will the spine remain?

• Can the curve worsen or progress after surgery?

• Will additional surgery be likely?

• Will the patient be able to do all the things he or she wants to do following surgery?

With traditional open procedures of the scoliosis surgery the patient can find many advantages. Here are some:

• Scars are dramatically less noticeable

• Blood loss during surgery is reduced

• Less disruption to the rib cage, muscles and other soft tissues

• Postoperative pain is lessened

• Rehabilitation and recovery are easier and faster
