Scoliosis Spine Surgery is done to realign and fuse the curved vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone.

Scoliosis surgeons can improve curves significantly with the tools and technology available today.


Scoliosis spine surgery involves several small incisions along the back. The surgeon then inserts a device called a tubular retractor.

This lets the surgeon reach the spine with small tools, and screws are attached to the spine to help make it straighter.

Frequently Asked Questions Related to Scoliosis Spine Surgery Cost

Scoliosis spine surgery requires several tests to help the doctor understand the anatomy of your spine, hence they will call for tests like X-ray, MRI Scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), CT/CAT Scans (Computer Assisted Tomography), Myelogram, Bone Scan, Spinal Tap, and EMG/SSP (Electro-diagnostic Study). The cost for these tests is a part of the package.

Any medicines given by the doctors or nurses at the hospital to prepare you for the surgery and help in your recovery are included in the package. When the patient is discharged and has to buy the medication from outside the hospital, it will not be included in the package. 

Usually, the patient has to stay in the hospital for 7 days after the surgery. The patient is admitted one day prior to the surgery to be briefed about the surgery and get a pre-anesthetic workup. Follow-up visits are paramount for the coming months of the surgery for at least a year.

A key element of recovering from scoliosis spine surgery is pain management, hence, after the surgery, the patient needs to get physical therapy and pain medications to help recover. Anything beyond the surgery is not covered in the package.

In the case of scoliosis spine surgery, it typically is covered by health insurance. However, braces put on after the surgery are not a part of the insurance. We suggest you contact your insurance provider to know the exact benefits.

Nonsurgical treatments for scoliosis spine surgery that are cheaper and take less downtime include physical therapy, braces, and chiropractic treatment.

Everything You Need to Know About Scoliosis Spine Surgery: Q&A

Before the Procedure (14 Questions):

Mild cases of scoliosis may not need treatment. But, moderate to severe scoliosis that is left untreated can lead to pain and increasing deformity, as well as potential heart and lung damage. Also, if it is the case of a young child, the deformity increases drastically with hormone changes happening during puberty.

Spinal fusion for idiopathic scoliosis is an extensive surgery that is often only considered as a last option. However, it is a major surgery and a big decision that should not be made without first considering all options.

The choice of when to have surgery will vary. After the bones of the skeleton stop growing, the curve should not get much worse. Because of this, the surgeon may wait until your child's bones stop growing. Your child may need surgery before this if the curve in the spine is severe or is getting worse quickly.

A hump in Scoliosis is usually due to the twisted spine becoming prominent or the bent of the ribs. Surgery makes this bent smaller but it will not totally disappear. The surgeon can give the exact picture of how much deformity will be improved after the surgery.

Rarely does adult scoliosis alone cause paralysis or other severe neurologic problems, but it can be associated with lumbar stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal or tube where the nerves lay), which can result in nerve irritation, leg pain and possibly weakness.

 

Yes, conceiving is not generally hindered after this surgery unless some other limiting factors are also involved. This surgery also does not mean that such women will have to undergo only C-section for delivery as it does not affect undergoing natural birth process.

The length of the scar from spinal fusion surgery depends on the area and number of vertebra that are fused. It also depends on whether posterior or anterior approach has been used for surgery.In the posterior approach, you can typically expect a single scar of 6-12 inches while in the anterior approach, there could be 3-4 incisions measuring nearly 4-6 inches. However, this length varies from person to person

Some patients have back pain after the spinal fusion surgery. It is normally in the upper back or lower spine region. However, it can be easily treated with exercise and other simple measures like medications. But in some cases revision surgery to ease back pain or remove the implants may be required.

Spinal fusion surgery reduces the flexibility of the back but this depends on which region of your back is fused and the length of the spine involved.Surgeries in upper cervical region limit movements of the neck while those in the middle impact forward bending slightly. Surgeries in the lumbar region affect flexibility and restrict certain movements.

Yes, you may need spine surgery if your spine curve is greater than 45 to 50 degree because it may become worse when you grow up it can cause deformity in your back or may affect the functioning of your lungs.

Spinal scoliosis is a very successful surgery which helps in preventing the growth of spine.

As spinal bones protect the spinal cord, your surgeon will make your bone straight as long as it is safe. The degree of correction of the surgery depend on the flexibility of your scoliosis before surgery. If your curve is more flexible you will get more correction from surgery.

After the surgery you will have more pain than before but it will resolve with a period of few weeks to months. Most people get relief from back pain at one year after surgery as it was before.

Scoliosis surgery can correct your spine by 40 to 65% and it totally depends on your flexibility of your spine, type and size of the curve and their age.

During the Procedure (5 Questions):

Usually it takes four to six hours.

Hospital stay is usually for 6 days.

In spinal fusion surgery the curved vertebrae fuses and form into a single and solid growth. The bone growth will be stopped to prevent the curve from getting worse.  Bone grafts are being placed between the bones to help on fusion when the bone grows together then a broken bone starts healing.

Spine surgery will take around 4 to 8 hours depending on the size of patient’s curve and the amount of spine which needs to be fused.

This surgery is being done during the growing year  of the child, rods are attached to the spine for correcting and maintaining the curvature of the spine. In every six to twelve month the child has to be taken for another surgery for lengthening of the rod. Once patient gets close to skeletal maturity, spinal fusion will usually happen.

Post the Procedure (7 Questions):

A brace supports the spine and keeps it immobilized after surgery to enhance healing. With modern instrumentation techniques, the need for a rigid brace is much reduced. A corset or a soft brace can be used to support the muscles.

Spinal surgery for scoliosis is a major operation and requires long recovery period. During this time post operative visits and follow up checkups are a must to ensure that the recovery is on track. The patient is called for follow up on 12 day of the surgery to remove any stitches and patient can return to home country after that.

Depending on your age you might be ready to return to work or school around 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. This timescale is different for each person. Many patients will be back to normal activity levels around 3 after surgery.

The intensity of pain after surgery varies from patient to patient, as surgery is a major procedure it involves movement of muscles and realigning of the skeleton.  Usually the first few days of the surgery are uncomfortable but most people are able to move by third or fourth day of surgery.

If rods are being used in fusion they are not usually removed, very few people require removal of rod. When removal of rod is needed there can be lot of reason for it such as a infection or breakage of rod.

The portion which is being fused in your back is permanently stiff, most people usually works from the unfused portion in their lower back.  If you are participating in any activity in which lot of flexibility is being required then it may take time to adapt.

You should limit yourself from avoiding lifting any heavy objects and you have to reduce the level of bending for the first 6 weeks after surgery.
