Kyphosis correction surgery is an option for patients whose curvatures continue to progress and non-operative treatments do not relieve pain or symptoms. Nonoperative treatments include painkillers, physiotherapy, and braces. Kyphosis usually develops in the thoracic spine. But it can also develop in the cervical spine and lumbar spine. The exact treatment for kyphosis depends on where it is located in the spine and the severity. Surgery is often recommended when the curves measures over 60° to 70° degrees on x-rays and that cause severe pain, digestion or breathing difficulties. Surgery is also an option for patients whose kyphosis leads to compression on the spinal cord or nerves.
Typical surgeries used for correction of kyphosis are osteotomy and spinal instrumentation and fusion. Spinal instrumentation and fusion surgery involves the placement of wires, cables, screws, rods, and plates to the spine to achieve better correction and stability while the spine fuses together. The screws are placed into the vertebra. Then rods and plates are attached to screws to connect everything together. Spinal fusion surgery permanently realign and fuses abnormal curved spinal bones together to eliminate motion between them so that they grow or heal together and form a single, solid bone.for spinal stability and prevention of future progression. Spinal instrumentation and fusion may be combined with osteotomy to stabilize the spine during healing. During osteotomy surgery, bone is cut to correct angular deformities. The bone ends are realigned and allowed to heal.
