Kyphosis Correction Surgeries
Kyphosis is a condition where the spine is curved to the forward abnormally. It has many reasons including osteoporosis, disc degeneration, spinal fractures and birth defects. Moderate cases of Kyphosis are manageable, however severe situations may cause fatigue, pain and numbness. In extreme cases Kyphosis may cause breath function to reduce due to cardiac limitations. The case should be monitored using X-Rays to check if it is getting worse. Surgery might be preferred to correct severe cases as well as cases that keep getting worse. Surgery is recommended for cases with curves larger than 60° to 70°.
