Cases

Spinal deformity occurs most commonly as a result of degenerative disease, though there are other causes. The condition may lead to pain, loss of function and reduction in quality of life. Patients may be bent forward and find it very difficult to stand upright (kyphosis) or have a “twisted” spine (scoliosis).

Scoliosis and deformity surgery is typically performed by spinal surgeons who have undertaken further advanced training.
