The orthopedic surgeons of the Spine Center use the most advanced anterior and posterior surgical methods for the correction of spinal deformities. The surgical approaches, whether with fusion or a non-fusion growth-sparing technique, are designed with the individual patient and their deformity in mind.
One of these procedures for scoliosis is vertebral body tethering (VBT), also called spinal growth tethering surgery, a procedure that partially restrains one side of the spine to allow growth on the other side. Patients from across the country come to Rady Children’s for this cutting-edge procedure. Learn more about our surgical options below.
