Operasi Korektif Deformitas Tulang Belakang at Raffles Hospital, Singapore

Skoliosis dan Kyphosis adalah pembengkokan dari tulang belakang. Meskipun umumnya ditemui pada remaja, kelainan ini juga mempengaruhi anak-anak dan orang dewasa. Tujuan dari perawatan kelainan tulang belakang adalah untuk menghentikan perkembangan, menormalkan fungsi tulang belakang dan meminimalisir masalah nyeri.

"Spinal fusion" atau fusi tulang belakang adalah operasi yang paling umum dilakukan untuk menyembuhkan skoliosis. Dalam prosedur ini, tulang diambil dari salah satu bagian tubuh (autograft) atau diperoleh dari donor (allograft) untuk selanjutnya dicangkok ke ruas tulang belakang. Setelah penyembuhan, tulang massa yang padat akan terbentuk dan tulang pungung menjadi tegak.
