“ASC is our multi-year, multi-generational improvement upon our original technique of VBT since 2013, which we now find superior to metal rod fusion in our practice. Because of our pioneering evolution of VBT to ASC, there’s virtually no curve that in our opinion wouldn’t be better served by ASC over metal rod fusion.” — Dr. A.

Anterior scoliosis correction is a dynamic scoliosis surgery founded and pioneered by Drs. ABC.
It evolved from vertebral body tethering (VBT) and has proven to be a highly effective scoliosis treatment for children and adults alike. Unlike VBT, scoliosis and spine surgeons can offer ASC treatment to patients with scoliosis with varying severity. Patients with severe curvatures of the spine and stiff and mature spines may be candidates for ASC just as much as young patients with idiopathic scoliosis. Our scoliosis and spine surgeons became the best in the world by offering more treatment options for a wider variety of patients.
While eligibility is a key difference between VBT vs. ASC, you cannot ignore the benefits anterior scoliosis correction provides. When you receive treatment from the best scoliosis doctors in the world, you can experience less invasive, muscle-sparing surgery, reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, and optimized recovery times and outcomes.
Additionally, our scoliosis and spine surgeons use state-of-the-art screws and cords to preserve the growth, mobility, and flexibility of our patients’ spines. Within six to eight weeks, most patients are able to return to normal activity and live life unencumbered by a stiffening spine (like they would with spinal fusion). If you’re interested in learning if ASC is the ideal solution for you or your child, submit your case for review, and our scoliosis and spine specialists will evaluate it.
