Paramus Daily Voice—October 18, 2016

In a recent article published by Paramus Daily Voice, Bernard A. Rawlins, MD, spine surgeon at HSS, explains post-traumatic kyphosis.

"Because post-traumatic kyphosis can progress if the injury heals without intervention, the goal for patients in the acute phase is to correct the spinal alignment as soon as it is safe to do so," said Dr. Rawlins. "Treatment recommendations are based on a variety of factors, including the type of fracture, the site of the fracture, the extent of angulation in the affected part of the spine and the size of the patient."
