In brief: Depends
The outcome of a spinal fusion can be related to the re-alignment of the spine in what we consider sagittal and coronal planes.
Spinal deformity surgery aims to maintain balance while correcting curvature and rotation to more "normal" parameters. Perfectly straight back alignment may not be as good as a well-balanced reconstruction. Speak with your surgeon about what to expect.
