Normally spine is straight when you see front to back and body is erect when seen from side to side. Abnormal curvature of the spine is spine deformity. Side-to-side abnormal spinal curve is Scoliosis. (See Figure-1)

Back deformitySpine of a person with scoliosis looks more like an “S” or a “C” than a straight line. Forward bending of the spine which produces a round back deformity is Kyphosis. (See Figure-2)

Scoliosis is of 4 types, in that adolescent idiopathic scoliosis accounts for 80 percent of cases, with prevalence of 0.47–5.2 % in general population.

Spinal fusion is very successful in stopping the curve from growing. We could also straighten the scoliosis spine significantly, which will improve the patient’s appearance as well as lung function.

Spinal bones protect your spinal cord, we will straighten the spinal column to an extent, as far as spinal cord is safe.

How safe scoliosis correction surgery? What are the chances of paralysis after scoliosis treatment?

Scoliosis correction surgery is safe in hands of Dr. Vignesh Pushparaj. He had got a well-qualified and updated team for execution. Paralysis chance post-surgery is minimal because we use updated technology called intraoperative neuromonitoring to monitor the spinal cord function all through the surgery, which will prevent complication such as paralysis.

How long does scoliosis correction surgery take?

Surgery lasts from 4 to 8 hours, depending on the size of the patient’s curve. Some of this time is spent preparing the patient for anaesthesia, hooking the patient up to nero monitors, and positioning the patient to be as safe and comfortable as possible.

How much pain will I be in after surgery?

The amount of pain people report after surgery varies from patient to patient. The surgery is a major procedure that involves moving muscles and realigning the skeleton. The first 24hours are usually painful, but most people improve rapidly from 2nd or 3rd  post-operative day. They will be made to walk around, and get in and out of bed on 1st or 2nd  day post-surgery. Mild pain may persist for 2 to 3 weeks after surgery, pain medication should no longer be necessary.

Do the rods and screws stay in spine for life time?

Screws and rods are used for curve correction, to maintain alignment and fusion, they usually are not removed. Very few people require rod removal. When it is required, this may be for a variety of reasons. We use only imported or surgical grade titanium implants that doesn’t need 2nd surgery for removal.

Will fusion make patients back stiff and unable to move?

There will be enough movements with the help of hip joints, there will be minimal restriction of about 5-10 degree. Most people have enough motion in the unused portion of their lower backs to perform all activities of daily living and most sports. It may take a while to adapt. Most people find that, within a year or so, their backs begin to feel.
