A spine reconstructive surgery is performed when is diagnosed with a deformed or a misaligned spine. The treated spine is stabilised with pins and rods to keep the vertebrae in place. The procedure can also involve complete removal and replacement of the vertebrae with the use of computerised surgical techniques.
A spine reconstructive surgery can also be done with minimal invasion to ensure the surrounding soft tissues are not disrupted. However, surgery is only an option when conventional medical treatments are not effective and the patient is undergoing a lot of pain, hindering their daily activities and life on the whole.
