What Is Scoliosis?
The abnormal curve of the spine is termed as scoliosis. It is a disorder that is mostly seen in females than in males. Primarily scoliosis results from conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy. However, the exact cause of scoliosis is not known.
Minimally invasive scoliosis is a corrective surgery done to fix scoliosis. It is fairly a new method for correcting abnormal spine curve. Scoliosis can be cured without surgery but is needed when the range of curve is more than 45 degrees. The surgery for scoliosis is a spinal fusion.

Scoliosis Surgery in Hyderabad
Spinal fusion is a procedure to correct scoliosis. In this procedure, the curves of the spine are removed and fused so that the spine cannot bend. However, the type of fusion depends on the curve. Then the small pieces of bone grafts will be augmented over the spine. The bone grafts are generally taken from the person’s pelvic bone.
Several techniques can be used for fusion, but the type of instrumentation vary depending upon the severity of spine curve, patient’s age, and surgeon’s experience. The spine fusion surgery can be carried out either from the back of the spine (posterior approach) or from the front (anterior approach).
