Moreno Spine & Scoliosis


When a bone needs to be surgically cut or broken, it is called an osteotomy. In the spine, an osteotomy is sometimes performed to create motion between segments of the spine in order to correct a deformity. Another reason for an osteotomy may be to remove a block of bone that obstructs the spinal canal or requires removal for clearer visualization of nerves or other structures around the spine.
