How Is Scoliosis Surgery Performed?


Scoliosis surgery is performed by attaching small screws to the spine and use a special rod to attach each of the screws together, while adjusting the angles of the spine to straighten the curve. In the past, scoliosis surgery had a high risk.

However, the advancement of technologies in the present days play a role in reducing potential risks during surgery.

  • Navigator precisely locates the position and determines the angle during surgery.
  • Intraoperative Neuromonitoring monitors neural pathways that connects the central nervous system with the spinal cord. This technology reduces the risk of nerve injuries during the surgery, making the procedure safer, more precise and effective.
