Default Re: Can spinal fusion be repeated?

Thank you for your question. Revision surgery can be done for scoliosis but it tends to be more difficult and with higher risks than the first operation. This is particularly the case if further correction through the old fusion area is needed to improve the correction.

Surgeons experienced in this surgery may be found in major cities in each state. Many of those who treat adolescent or childhood scoliosis also see adults with spinal deformity. I would suggest looking at the list of specialists on the website. It is also a good idea to seek second opinions when considering major surgery.
