  • Scheuermann's disease can be successfully corrected with surgical procedures, almost all of which include spinal fusion and hardware instrumentation, i.e., rods, pedicle screws, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • degrees
  • Once diagnosed, the curvature will be carefully monitored and, until it worsens or reaches 25 degrees, may not need treatment. (wordpress.com)
