It varies: It varies quite a bit depending on the approach, the number of bones being fused, the amount of implants needed, the length of the procedure, the need for intensive care, the length of hospitalization and rehabilitation. Your spine specialist should be able to give you an estimate, taking into account your specific curve and proposed options.

Varies: Scoliosis surgery is major surgery, technically demanding, and resource intensive. Like any other service, the cost to the patient depends on many factors including expertise of the surgeon, the service level expected, and terms of the insurance policy purchased by the patient. Some surgeons may be able to help with upfront pricing estimates.
