Scoliosis is a medical condition in which your backbone is curved more than 10 degrees, and thus requires surgical correction.
Surgical procedures can cost a great deal of money even when you have what you think is good health insurance coverage. This is because there is usually a deductible that has to be met first and a lifetime limit on benefits.
This is why many people look to Turkey for their medical care. To learn more about scoliosis surgery and how we can help you get the best, most affordable care, continue reading.
About Scoliosis Surgery
Scoliosis often needs to be treated surgically, and the type of surgery depends on the cause of the condition and the age of the patient.
In some cases, scoliosis is a congenital condition in which the person is born with it. In children, scoliosis surgery often involves operations done to help the spine and ribs grow. In these surgeries, rods are attached so that these bony structures can grow correctly.
In other people, scoliosis may be caused by having a condition such as Down syndrome, Marfan syndrome, cerebral palsy, or even from an infection or a tumor. Scoliosis can be corrected surgically through spinal fusion in which bones of the backbone are fused together using bone grafts and metal plates.
