* refers specifically to ASC – cord cases as pioneered by Drs. ABC. The doctors have years and thousands of cases of experience in spine and scoliosis surgery, anterior and posterior.
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.
The scoliosis surgery patient here 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. Also, observe the unrestricted range of motion compared to metal rod fusion. Patients are released to sports at 6 weeks.
