Typical Posterior Metal Rod Fusion
This scoliosis surgery patient had a posterior fusion with metal rods to correct his scoliosis. Typical results of posterior fusion surgery are a very straight back, with a long linear scar. His remaining mobility only exists in the area below the rods, near his waist. Recovery is typically 6-9 months long.
