Please explain if it is possible to get a thoracoplasty (rib removal) without having corrective scoliosis surgery?

Not a clear? ?? A rib removal has nothing 2 do with scoli.Nor does a thoracoplasty have any connection 2 scoli. A thoracoplasty, depending on what is 2 b done may or may not require rib/ribs 2 b removed, but not in their entirety, just enough 2 allow exposure.
