More than 25,000 people on a yearly basis suffer from a severe case of scoliosis, to the point they require surgery. Spinal fusion is the most frequently performed surgical procedure to correct severe scoliosis.

Surgery is a way to correct adult scoliosis when nonsurgical treatments do not relieve pain or symptoms. Adult scoliosis correction surgery utilizes spinal implants, rods, and screws, that can correct scoliosis and hold the spine stable while the bones heal.

In this video, you can see how the surgery is performed. It will give you a better sense what to expect if you need to go under the knife.
