    ⁠Best Scoliosis and Kyphosis Surgery Doctor in Chennai

    Scoliosis and kyphosis are spinal deformities characterized by abnormal curvature of the spine. Scoliosis involves a lateral (sideways) curvature, while kyphosis involves an excessive forward curvature of the spine. Surgery may be recommended for severe cases of scoliosis or kyphosis that cause pain, spinal instability, or cosmetic concerns and have not responded to conservative treatments.


    • Severe scoliosis with a curvature greater than 40-50 degrees, particularly if it is progressing rapidly.
    • Pain or neurological symptoms (such as numbness or weakness) due to spinal nerve compression.
    • Spinal deformity affecting vital organs or interfering with normal functioning.

    Types of ⁠⁠Scoliosis and Kyphosis Correction Surgery

    Posterior Spinal Fusion

    The surgeon uses bone grafts and metal instrumentation such as rods, screws, and hooks to stabilize the spine and correct the curvature. The curvature is corrected by straightening the spine and securing it in the corrected position.

    Anterior Spinal Fusion

    Anterior spinal fusion may be used alone or in combination with posterior fusion to achieve correction in certain cases of scoliosis, particularly when the curvature is more pronounced in the thoracic region.

    Kyphosis Correction Surgery

    Posterior spinal fusion may be recommended for severe kyphosis with a curvature greater than 50 degrees, particularly if it is causing pain, neurological symptoms, or cosmetic deformity.


    Osteotomy involves making cuts in the vertebrae to release tension and allow for correction of the curvature. The surgeon then stabilizes the spine with instrumentation and bone grafts. Osteotomy may be considered when the kyphotic curve is rigid and resistant to correction with fusion alone.

    Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy

    It is a surgical intervention specifically for treating disc herniations in the lower back (lumbar region). Surgeons use an endoscope to remove portions of the herniated disc that are causing pain and other symptoms by exerting pressure on nerve roots.

    Endoscopic Microdiscectomy

    It is similar in purpose to endoscopic lumbar discectomy, focuses on the treatment of herniated discs. However, it involves specialized microsurgical techniques and instruments in addition to the endoscope.

    Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy

    Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy targets disc herniations in the neck (cervical region). Surgeons remove the herniated parts of a cervical disc that are compressing the spinal cord or nerve roots.
