Many patients do not realize the extent to where their bodies depend on the healthy alignment of the spine to feel healthy and function properly. One of the most common forms of spinal deformation in adults is scoliosis, which is the abnormal curvature of the spine. For some patients, spinal deformation remains stable and does not need any form of treatment. However, there are some cases when severe curvature might lead to pain and disrupted function in the spine. Under these circumstances, patients might need spinal deformation treatment, including spine stabilization surgery.
There are various other problems that can occur in patients, including spondylolisthesis, which is when one vertebrae slips out of alignment, this condition and severe cases of scoliosis need treatment from the most qualified surgeon, often one overseas.
