Scoliosis Surgery

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the backbone. The backbone should run straight down the back. For children or adolescents with scoliosis, the backbone might be curved like the letters "C" or "S. Surgery is sometimes recommended to correct the curvature. Bones in the spine are secured with a metal rod so the backbone grows straight.
