In certain severe cases of scoliosis, spinal fusion may be necessary. We offer the most advanced spinal fusion techniques available. Rods and specialized pedicle screws are attached to vertebrae to fuse the bones together, helping to straighten the spine.

Patient before and after spine fusion with Dr. Feldman

This procedure is only utilized for severe curves (>50 degrees) where other treatment methods are not enough to correct the deformity. This surgery allows for early mobility and a return to all activities in as little as one to two months.

For all of his spinal fusion patients, Dr. Feldman utilizes a specialized multilayered closure technique by a plastic surgeon in order to dramatically lower the rate of post-operative wound complications.
