Kyphosis Correction

Kyphosis Correction Surgery

The spine has a natural curvature, referred to as the hyperkyphotic curve. When abnormal kyphosis occurs, the spine has an extreme curve in the upper or mid regions, resulting in pain and deformity for the patient. Kyphosis correction surgery can help straighten the spine, prevent further curving and reduce pain for the patient. We offer kyphosis correction surgery at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to improve the quality of life for our patients.

Abnormal kyphosis is often caused by osteoporosis, commonly referred to as a "hunchback" that stoops the patient over. Spine compression fractures can cause this type of curvature, as can weakening of the bones in the spine. When severe, kyphosis can impact the internal organs and limit mobility. Non-surgical options like physical therapy are always recommended before spine surgery, but when the curvature is severe or quickly progressing, kyphosis correction surgery may be the best option to give relief.

Surgical Treatments for Kyphosis

The type of surgery needed for kyphosis correction depends on the deformity of the patient's spine and the cause. Some treatments may be minimally-invasive outpatient procedures, while others require more extensive spine surgery. Straightening and strengthening the spine from kyphosis can include:

Our team of spine specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can determine the best option for surgically correcting kyphosis.
