Spinal fusion is very successful in stopping the curve from growing. Today, doctors are also able to straighten the curve significantly, which improves the patient’s appearance.
In a spinal fusion, the curved vertebrae are fused together so that they heal into a single, solid bone. This will stop growth completely in the abnormal segment of the spine and prevent the curve from getting worse. All spinal fusions use some type of bone material, called a bone graft, to help promote fusion. Generally small pieces of bone are placed into the spaces between the vertebrae to be fused. The bone grows together- similar to when a broken bone heals.
Metal rods are typically used to hold the spine in place until fusion takes place. The rods are attached to the spine by screws, hooks, and/or wires.
After spinal fusion most people have enough motion in their backs to perform all activities of daily living and most sports. If you participate in activities which require a tremendous amount of flexibility, it may take awhile to adapt. Most people find that within a year or so their back begins to feel normal while doing activities.
No, it should not. There have been many studies by experts on scoliosis and pregnancy, and none have shown difficulties in conceiving in those patients.
