Deformity Correction

See also Limb Lengthening and Deformity

Deformity correction is the surgical adjustment or modification of bone that grows incorrectly as the result of a disease or condition.

Spinal deformity correction surgery can be used to help patients with scoliosis, kyphosis, trauma, or other conditions that affect the spine, such as ankylosing spondylitis. Corrective surgery may also be used for conditions in which the legs, knees or ankles grow at incorrect angles or lengths.
