Scoliosis and kyphosis surgery are special surgical procedures performed in accordance with certain principles. The patient's postural disorder alone does not constitute a surgical indication. Values which increase during the follow up and which are within the surgical margins require a surgical decision.

Gulten came from Batman to visit us. She experienced 2 lumbar vertebral fractures in the past; and then began to collapse forward and become hunchbacked. Her operation was highly successful. A total of 8 titanium screws were placed in the fractured L1 and L2 vertebrae as well as their upper and lower levels. The L1-2 joint space was completely emptied by microdiscectomy under the microscope, and then an implant was placed between the two vertebrae, with intent to eliminated the collapse. With screw and implant, both a kyphosis correction (correction of the hump) was provided and the possible recurrence of the collapse was prevented with fusion.

The patient who walked in the evening of the day of surgery also walked with me in the hallway the next morning, and was discharged from the hospital on the 3rd postoperative day.
