Might not be right: Kyphotic and lordotic are both normal curvature of the spine. Our neck and low back are lordotic and our middle spine or thoracic spine is kyphotic.

What is spine surgery to correct lumbar lordosis?

Swayback: There is a normal amount of lordosis in the lumbar spine, which is approximately 55 degrees. When you have a lordosis significantly more than this, it is called hyperlordosis, which is a way to say "swayback". A spinal surgery to correct this would be known as a spinal reconstruction surgery because it is an attempt to reconstruct the normal alignment of the spine. Thanks. ...Read more
