Adult idiopathic and degenerative scoliosis

The kyphosis or scoliosis of the adult can be primary degenerative or secondary to a progressive idiopathic. This is a very invalidating pathology, which is characterized by low back pain and the inability to maintain the erect posture. It is one of the main challenges in spine surgery, this being a major surgery.


The objective of the surgery is to decompress the compromised neurological structures returning to the patient the normal curve of their spine, to maintain the erect posture with maximum comfort improving their quality of life.

It is a major surgery with a high rate of potential complications, which is why it is reserved for selected cases where the benefit far exceeds the risks to be assumed.


Each case must be individually evaluated to offer the best surgery option.
