Scoliosis Fixation: Hey. Scoliosis is a complex spinal deformity that has multiple ways to fix and with it, multiple potential complications. Some of the common ones, believe it or not, are the extra stuff such as urinary tract infections. Spine specific common complications include infection, blood clots and blood loss (may need a transfusion).

Scoli fixation: There are may things that can happen.... About 6 pages long, and it requires you to find someone you trust to help you. Speak with your surgeon and make sure you feel good about his volume and explanation of the surgrery and the possible complications, both surgically- and medically.
