Spinal surgery is a complex field and, even in the most skilled hands, may not always achieve excellent results. Surgical correction may involve freeing the nerves again and/or re-stabilizing the spine with a fusion.
Complex Deformity Reconstruction
In some cases the spine is deformed by scoliosis or kyphosis. Other cases require complex surgery due to a tumor or traumatic injury.
