What is spinal fusion surgery in children?

Also known as:  lumbar spinal fusion surgery, spinal fusion.

Spinal fusion surgery helps to stop the progression of curving of the spine, known as scoliosis. The surgery helps to not only straighten the curve, but can improve children’s posture, fit of clothing, prevent back pain, and minimize other side effects of scoliosis.
