Treatment of scoliosis

Scoliosis is a medical condition where the spine has a sideways C- or S-shaped curved. It can be either congenital or result from tumors, conditions such as limb length inequality, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, or trauma.

Scoliosis Symptoms

Depending on the severity of the spinal curvature, the following symptoms may appear:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Constipation (due to compression of intestines)
  • Limited mobility
  • Respiratory or cardiac problems

Sample Treatment Program

Diagnostics:

  • Spinal X-ray and MRI scan
  • Consultation of orthopedic surgeon specializing in scoliosis

Treatment:

There are two ways to treat scoliosis, conservative and surgical.

  • Bracing – a conservative method that involves a special custom made brace. It is normally prescribed for young patients, whose bone growth hasn’t yet finished.
  • Surgery – indicated for patients whose bone growth has finished. Cost of operations can vary depending on the extent of the spinal curvature and the number of implants used during the procedure. It normally includes preoperative preparation, implants, hospitalization and postoperative monitoring.

Provided there are no complications, you can expect to be discharged within 5-7 days following the surgery and be cleared to travel back home approximately two weeks following your discharge.
