Typical Posterior Metal Rod Fusion
This 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.
Typical Anterior Double ASC
This patient had a Double Anterior Scoliosis Correction (ASC). Her smaller scars are located on either side of her body, hidden under her arms. Notice her normal appearing spine, shoulder and waist symmetry, and unrestricted range of motion compared to metal rod fusion. Patients are released to sports at 6 weeks.
