What is scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curve of the (backbone). If the spine is very crooked, the ribs or hips may stick out more on one side than the other. In addition, one shoulder may be lower than the other. Scoliosis may begin in childhood but often is not noticed until the teen years. In most cases, the exact cause isn’t known. It seems to run in some families and is more common in girls than boys..
How can I tell if my child has scoliosis?
Check the child’s spine to see if it curves; also check to see if one shoulder is lower than the other. The doctor may also check just by looking at your child’s stance, or x-rays may be needed for a definitive diagnosis.
Does scoliosis cause any problems?
In most people, the curve in the spine is so small it causes no problems. In fact, it doesn’t usually cause back pain. In severe cases, however, the curve may restrict the amount of space available for the lungs and heart to work properly.
How is scoliosis treated in children?
In most cases no treatment is needed. Your doctor will check your child regularly to make sure the curve isn’t getting worse. Sometimes a brace is worn to keep the spine from curving more than it already is. The good news is that today’s braces are lighter and less bulky and often are not visible under clothing. If the brace doesn’t stop the spine from curving, surgery may be needed.
What is known about endoscopic surgery for scoliosis?
Endoscopic surgery for scoliosis most often involves “loosening” the spine or performing an “anterior release” at needed levels to allow for ultimate straightening of the spine. Before surgery, your child will receive general anesthesia. This will make your child unconscious and unable to feel pain during the operation.
During surgery, your child’s surgeon will use steel rods, hooks, screws, or other metal devices to straighten your child’s spine and support the bones of the spine. Bone grafts are placed to hold the spine in the correct position and keep it from curving again. The surgeon will make at least one surgical cut to get to your child’s spine. This cut may be in your child’s back, chest, or both places. The surgeon may also do the procedure using a special video camera.
