Life’s too short to put up with pain.
The orthopaedic surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center provide patients with expert treatment for scoliosis. Once the diagnosis is complete, a treatment plan is developed based upon the size and location of the curve, the age of the patient, and the symptoms experienced. Ideally, if treatment is required, a brace can be used to slow the progression of the curve. In the case of very severe scoliosis, a surgical procedure may be prescribed. Through the insertion of pedicle screws and hooks at various points in the spine in conjunction with rods, the spine is straightened. The rods are then locked in position and a bone graft is applied to create a fusion, to prevent further curve progression.
