Spinal deformity or scoliosis is becoming more common in this country as our population grows older. Scoliosis and kyphosis are curvatures of the spine that develop in the aging spine.
- Pain and difficulty walking or standing
- Feeling “off balance”
- Outward curvature of the spine at the back

When these deformities lead to pain or dysfunction of the spinal cord/nerve roots, non-surgical or surgical treatment options may be necessary. Our neurosurgical team offers minimally invasive approaches and open deformity correction procedures.
