The Bottom Line
Surgery for adult degenerative scoliosis is an elective procedure. As mentioned, there are significant risks involved and therefore, all conservative treatment should be tried prior to undergoing the procedure.
Less than 10% of those with symptomatic degenerative scoliosis end up needing surgery for the condition. Effective pain management often negates the need for surgery.
Arizona Pain Specialists provides a multitude of nonoperative therapies to help avoid surgery for degenerative scoliosis. These include the procedures and therapies and medications mentioned above along with regenerative medicine treatments that are just coming into play.
