Three Column Osteotomies

Three column osteotomies are a type of surgical procedure used to correct spinal deformities such as kyphosis or scoliosis. These osteotomies involve the removal and repositioning of bone to correct the alignment of the spine in three dimensions. They are performed in conjunction with spinal fusion to provide stability and proper alignment of the spine.

The three columns referred to in three column osteotomies are the anterior, middle, and posterior columns of the spine. By addressing all three columns, surgeons can achieve comprehensive correction of the spinal deformity.

These procedures are complex and require careful planning and execution by a skilled surgical team. They are only performed by orthopedic or neurosurgeons who specialize in spinal deformity surgery.

For more specific information regarding three column osteotomies, please consult with your surgeon.
