[Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis]

REVOLUTIONARY SURGERY FOR IDIOPATHIC SCOLIOSIS WITHOUT LOSS OF SPINAL MOBILITY

A less invasive operation that will allow your child to lead a normal life

Idiopathic scoliosis is a problem for many adolescents, and it affects many families.

If you have come this far, it is normal that you are concerned about your child’s health and want him or her to enjoy a full and pain-free life.

This innovative surgery avoids the loss of mobility of the spine and does not leave metallic implants; as well as providing a solution to back pain, aesthetic alterations and breathing difficulties.

*However, this technique is not recommended for all cases:

  • If you have a mild scoliosis with a good prognosis, surgery is not necessary.
  • If your daughter has not yet had her first menstrual period, you should wait to perform it.
  • If she is finishing her growth spurt, she cannot have this treatment.

Most cases meet these requirements and can be treated.

We have designed the following test so that you can check if this technique is suitable for your child.

Effective Approach

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

The method used for this technique is less invasive.

This reduces the likelihood of infection and complications.

Innovative Technology

Minimally Invasive Method

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a curvature that appears during adolescence and increases during the period of rapid growth and more slowly at the end of growth.

In scoliosis, a curve appears that is associated with aesthetic deformities such as rib hump, asymmetry of the waist and shoulders.

Benefits of Less Invasive Approach

Minimally invasive intervention

  • Less invasive technique than the traditional approach.
  • It corrects aesthetic deformity.
  • It maintains the mobility of the spine.
  • No metal implants are left in the spine.

How is this Surgery Implemented?

a surgical method that makes a difference and avoids the complications of traditional surgery

It is performed by the conventional or mini-invasive approach, using implants to completely correct the scoliosis.

  • This intervention requires hospitalisation for five to seven days.
  • After this operation, children can lead a normal life and play non-contact sports.
  • When growth is complete, at approximately two and a half years post surgery, the previous instrumentation will be removed, and in this way the correction obtained and the mobility of the spine will be maintained.

*Instrumentation removal surgery requires two or three days of hospitalisation.

Health Problems Resulting From Scoliosis:

AESTHETIC ALTERATION

SPINAL PAIN

DIFFICULTY IN MOBILITY

RESPIRATORY RESTRICTION

EARLY MORTALITY IN SEVERE CASES

Disadvantages of the Traditional Approach

Traditional surgery corrects the aesthetic alteration by exposing the spine from behind and fixing the vertebrae with metal implants. This method stiffens an important part of the spine which results in a loss of mobility.

This causes damage to the neighboring discs.
In addition, the metal implants are retained for life, which leads to an increase of metal in the blood and organs in patients.

Furthermore, this technique does not correct the respiratory restriction that these patients had before surgery.

Helping patients recover their lifes

ADOLESCENT SCOLIOSIS

  • Pain on exertion.
  • Easy fatigue.
  • Frequent colds due to respiratory restriction.
  • Certain neuromuscular conditions, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy.
  • Birth defects that affect the formation of the bones of the spine.
  • Previous surgery on the chest wall in the first few months of life.
  • Injuries or infections of the spine.
  • Abnormalities of the spinal cord.
  • Age. Signs and symptoms typically begin in adolescence.
  • Gender. Although both boys and girls have mild scoliosis at about the same rate, girls are at greater risk of the curve worsening and requiring treatment.
  • Family history. Scoliosis can run in families, but most children with scoliosis have no family history of the condition.
  • Studies of the footprint.
  • The practice of exercises to strengthen the area (swimming).
  • Correct postural hygiene.
