Because your spinal bones protect your spinal cord, your surgeon will move the bones only as far as is safe. The degree of correction from surgery depends on how flexible your scoliosis is before your operation. In general, the more flexible your curve is, the better the correction from surgery. Your doctor can measure your flexibility before surgery with special x-rays called bending or traction films. Most patients recover from surgery with curves less than 25 degrees. In many cases, these small curves are hardly noticeable.
