What is Scoliosis Surgery? 

Scoliosis is the abnormal side-to-side curvature of the spine. The curve is usually developed "S"- or "C"-shaped.

The most common type of scoliosis:-

  1. Degenerative scoliosis- It’s also known as adult Spine Deformity (ASD) that means the spine is curved abnormally and viewed from the front or the back side.
  2. Idiopathic scoliosis- It‘s an abnormal curvature of the spine that present at birth or may be adolescence.

 

Spine Scoliosis surgery signs include:

  • Genetic disorder
  • Tumors
  • Idiopathic scoliosis
  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Environmental factors.
  • Uneven shoulders
  • Slow nerve action
  • Uneven waist

Spine Scoliosis surgery risk factor includes:-

  • Neurological complications
  • Infection
  • Heart & Lung problems
  • Blood clots
  • Infection
  • Tissue or nerve damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Marfan syndrome

 

 

  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

To identify the diagnosis doctor advised to go for complete evolution - usually, blood investigation, X-ray, myelograms, (CT) scans, magnetic resonance or (MRI) imaging. Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Spine Scoliosis surgery.

What are the types of scoliosis surgery?

  1. Posterior approach (back of the spine).
  2. Anterior approach (front of the spine).

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Spine Scoliosis surgery takes 5 to 7 hours depending upon the procedures by giving local or general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision:

  1. The surgeon makes an incision in the back, chest, or both places.
  2. The surgery will be performed with the help of different techniques-thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS).
  3. During the surgery surgeon move muscles aside after making the cut, the joints between the vertebrae will be taken out.
  4. Bone grafts will place between the vertebrae to correct position and keep it from curving again. Steel road, screws, hooks, or wires will also be fixed to support the bones of the spine.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The spine surgeon flaps the skin after the surgery with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips that close the skin incisions.

 

  • The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications and managing.
  • Stitches or staples will be removed after 7 to 10 days of surgery. 
  • Patients can move after 24 hours of the operation and after 3 days able to walk by a walker.
  • The surgeon will advise to wear a canvas type lumbar support belt for the first few weeks and undergo physiotherapy after some days.
  • Strenuous activities such as bike riding or running are advisable to start after six to eight months.
     

The success rate depends on surgeon experience. In acute Scoliosis, correction rate is around 7O%, and the risk factor is less than 2 %. The main goal of scoliosis surgery is to improved alignment of the spine.


 

  • Are you a board-certified surgeon?
  • How many years’ experience of you has in this field?
  • How many surgeries are you doing every day?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform these types of spine surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this Scoliosis surgery procedure?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and Why?
  • What are the goals and expectations of scoliosis surgery?
  • How many corrections expect to achieve after scoliosis surgery?
  • Which vertebrae will be fused in the average scoliosis correction?
  • Do normally show the patient the hardware that will use in the surgery?
  • Can we see or feel the hardware under the skin?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of my treatment surgery?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of Scoliosis surgery?
  • What are the risk factors for this type of Scoliosis surgery?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • Do I need to go to another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
