With kyphoscoliosis curve will rods always work, or is there an angle beyond which you can't use rods anymore?

In brief: Usually

Use of rods to correct khyphoscoliosis is not a new procedure.
It has been available for several decades. It's success has been proven in multiple studies. We do not seek to always fully correct the curve. We seek to balance the spine with scoliotic surgery.

In brief: No rods age 34

At the age of 34 i would not recommend rods.
I hope there are orthopedic dr's on this site with more expertise for you.
