A 46-year-old member asked:
is it possible for the spine to still curve even when one already went through a major surgery for scoliosis?

Dr. Stan Lee answered

: If a fusion done for scoliosis has consolidated (sucessfully fused), it is very unlikely that the curve will progress. If the fusion does not consolidate, the instrumentation may eventually break or loosen which would then allow progression. The segments above and below a fusion can develop scoliosis or be susceptible to curve progression.
