About adult scoliosis surgery

When should a person consider scoliosis surgery to straighten a curve? It’s a complex decision, because waiting too long carries increasing risks. That’s because the spine is most flexible — and more receptive to correction — when the person is under 21 years of age. As a person gets older, the spine is less flexible and the scoliosis surgeon must be careful to not over-correct which could cause damage to the spinal cord and cause paralysis. Advances in spinal deformity surgery has produced new instrumentation and fixation devices that untwist the spine. A surgeon trained in mini-scoliosis surgery accesses the spine through several shorter incisions rather that one long incision. This lessens the disruption to muscles and ligaments and speeds recovery.

At Texas Spine and Scoliosis, Dr. Matthew Geck and Dr. Rory Mayer are both fellowship-trained in spine surgery. Both Dr. Geck and Dr. Mayer are proficient in the most advanced treatment options for spinal curves and spinal deformity. Over the past 15 years Texas Spine and Scoliosis has treated scoliosis patients from across Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Dr. Geck through his SpineHope Foundation has also treated complex scoliosis patients from Mexico, Central America, Ecuador and South America
