There are a bunch of types. I have Idiopathic Scoliosis. (Cause is unknown) My surgery was almost 5 years ago and it required 2 -13inch metal rods holding my spine in place. There is a surgery where they put 1 rod across the shoulders and another down the spine itself. They also have a surgery where they fix the problem through the front of the body instead of the back. If you need anything else or just want to talk, email me at krazylife03@netscape.net or IM me at krazylife03 or Slugsgirl37

I had a surgery were they placed a 14 inch rod on my spine. They made the incision through my back. I dont regret the surgery at all.
