I am 39 years old with a 57 degree thorasic curve. I have seen several doctors. I am told fusing the whole back is not necessary and I can always return for more surgery to repair problems. But I am concerned about fusing the whole back except the last two vertebraes will really compromise my mobility? The doctor of my choice wants pretty much the back done. I am looking for some opinions as well as good surgeon in Milwaukee/Chicago.
