If your child is diagnosed with kyphosis early, prognosis for treatment is usually very good. Treatment can include both surgical and nonsurgical options. At Jefferson, we provide a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Our neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists and physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians) have a total commitment to excellence in patient care, education and research.
Our orthopedic surgeons are considered pioneers in the development of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), such as kyphoplasty to provide stability to the spine and return it to its normal shape. MISS can help reduce the risk of infection, decrease pain, reduce blood loss and facilitate faster recovery. As pioneers in MISS we have amassed extensive experience in the field providing this service to a large number of patients annually, and our radiologists are nationally recognized in the imaging of spinal disorders.
