Posterior Approach

What Is The Posterior Approach For Scoliosis?

Surgeons use several different techniques for scoliosis spine surgery. The most frequently performed surgery for idiopathic adolescent scoliosis involves posterior spinal fusion surgery. This kind of surgery is performed through the patient’s back while the patient lies on his or her stomach.

Why is it done?

The posterior approach to scoliosis was designed to correct abnormal curves in the spine. The posterior approach is the most traditional approach to spine surgery. The majority of spinal procedures are done using this approach.
