What is Kyphosis

Kyphosis is the condition that can be seen as a greater curvature or sharper contour of the spine when viewed from the side. It most commonly occurs in the thoracic spine of the back, but may also occur in other parts of the spine depending on various etiologic factors. The most common causes include developmental Scheuermann’s disease or age-related compression fractures. In some cases, it may occur following infection, trauma, or congenital factors. The main problems associated with kyphosis include difficulty breathing, back pain and pain in the lower extremities, numbness, weakness, bowel and bladder problems. Finally, due to the impact on the spinal system, paralysis can also occur. Depending on the type of kyphosis, conservative approaches such as stretching exercises, corset use and activity regulation are usually the first treatment option; If these measures are ineffective or the deformity is severe, surgical intervention is required. The operation is usually performed under general anesthesia. As with spinal procedures, the biggest complications that surgery can cause are neurological damage and the risk of infection. These risks are significantly reduced through the use of neuromonitoring techniques in our clinic. On our website you will find examples of cases treated and operated on in our clinic depending on various etiological factors.
