Kyphosis Correction Surgery Atlanta, GA

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:

  • Kyphoplasty – Kyphosis caused by spinal compression fractures can be remedied through kyphoplasty, strengthening and extending the height of the vertebra with bone cement injections.
  • Osteotomy – Cutting the spinal bones and straightening the spine, usually combined with spinal fusion.
  • Spinal fusion – Bone grafts and added instrumentation (screws, wires, plates or rods) through spinal fusion can straighten and strengthen the spine.

Our team of spine specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can determine the best option for surgically correcting kyphosis. Our surgeons are double board-certified and fellowship-trained to give you access to the highest level of expertise to treat kyphosis and other spinal conditions.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
