What you need to know about Scoliosis Surgery in London

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that occurs most before puberty during the growth spurt. Most cases of scoliosis are mild. However, it can get more severe, particularly as children grow. People with severe scoliosis may need surgery to treat their condition. Scoliosis surgery is the most extensive type of treatment for scoliosis. Besides for those with severe scoliosis, surgery may also be considered if:

  • The curve is getting significantly worse.

  • The curve is greater than 40 degrees.

  • The curve is interrupting your daily life and causes discomfort.

  • You experience severe back pain.

  • Other treatments have not helped your condition.

  • The nerves in your spine are being squashed or irritated.

There are several types of scoliosis surgery, including spinal fusion, growing systems (insertion of special rods), and fusion-less. The type of surgery you will get usually depends on your age and the severity of your scoliosis. 

What's the Recovery Time?

Full recovery can take about three to six months. However, school and work may be resumed after 4 to 6 weeks. Children may need to avoid sports roughly a year after surgery, while adults may need to avoid strenuous activities for a few months.

What's the Success Rate?

Spinal fusion surgery has a high overall success rate. The University of Washington’s Department of Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine reported that spinal fusion can achieve approximately 70% curve correction and has around 2 to 3% chances of complications when performed on someone under 16 with idiopathic scoliosis. However, the data for fusion-less surgery is not yet available.

As with any surgery, scoliosis surgery carries some risks, such as infection, pain, nerve damage, failure to heal, and excessive bleeding.
