Anterior & Posterior Approach
What Is The Anterior-Posterior Approach For Scoliosis?
Today’s surgeons use a variety of approaches to correct spinal deformities. They will decide which type of spine surgery is most appropriate for you depending on the type, severity and location of your spinal curve. For some deformities, your spine specialist may recommend that you have a “front and back” or anterior-posterior procedure.
Why is it done?
Surgeons generally recommend anterior-posterior surgery for curves that are severe and stiff, or when you have experienced failed previous attempts at fusion. Patients come to us for scoliosis treatment from Vernon, South Windsor, Manchester, Hartford, Bloomfield, Ellington and nearby areas.
