Hello, I want to ask yesterday I did an X-ray of the spine and the result was a curve in my spine and neck and the result was cervical thoracal scoliosis, I am 17 years old and what I want to ask is if you do the surgery what are the risks, thank you.

1 Answer:

Hello good morning Thomas.

Scoliosis is a condition where the spine is not straight (curved). This condition is usually detected during the age before puberty to adolescence. Scoliosis can be caused by hereditary factors, congenital at birth, as a result of bad habits (for example due to the habit of writing on your side, posture that is accustomed to tilting to one side, accustomed to carrying loads to one side of the week, the back tends to tilt, etc.), as well as due to neurological disorders and muscle.

The treatment of scoliosis depends on its severity. Not all scoliosis patients need surgery or surgery. In mild scoliosis, the doctor will usually recommend physiotherapy to use a brace to help straighten or inhibit the increase in the degree of curvature of the spine. In cases where other scoliosis treatments have not worked or the degree is severe, surgery may be an option. Surgery for scoliosis patients is performed by strengthening the spine with screws and steel rods. The risks that may occur during surgery for scoliosis are infection, nerve damage, or shifting of the steel shaft, but these things are rare.

You should again consult the most appropriate treatment options for your current condition to the orthopedist who treats you.

That's all, hope it helps.

Greetings, dr. Denisa
