Corrective Spine Osteotomy

What is Corrective Spine Osteotomy?

Corrective osteotomy is a surgical procedure to correct the abnormal curvature of the spine. The procedure is done to shorten or lengthen some of the bones in the spine and fuse them together in the correct alignment.

Why is Corrective Spine Osteotomy required?

Corrective osteotomy will reduce any pain and/or nerve compression. A more upright posture will make people feel less tired, as the upper body is now supported by a straighter spine, which also helps improve physical appearance.
