About Scoliosis Surgery

Spinal fusion is the most common surgery to correct severe scoliosis. For some patients it means freedom from a brace they may have been wearing. Within a few months after surgery, you could find yourself enjoying normal activities again.

What Is It?

An amazing revolution has taken place over the past few decades to help both spinal correction and the recovery process for patients with scoliosis – a condition in which the spine develops one or more abnormal, side-to-side curves.

Our Spinal System

The CD Horizon® LegacyTM Spinal System is designed to correct an abnormal curvature in the spine.

Benefits and Risks

When observation and bracing have failed to treat the spinal curvature, spinal surgery can be an option for stopping the progression of the curve and correcting the spinal deformity.
