Spinal deformity occurs most commonly as a result of degenerative disease. The condition may be so debilitating that patients could lose their motor function and quality of life. Patients may be bent forward and find it very difficult to stand upright (kyphosis) or have a twisted spine (scoliosis)
Spinal deformity if a complex problem and often requires additional X-rays and scans for full assessment. Surgery can help with deformity correction, relief of sciatic pain and sometimes back pain, however surgical intervention needs to be carefully considered as it is often a major procedure.

Surgery is performed to the highest standards. All patients deserve the very best in care, especially when they are dealing with debilitating spinal conditions.
