Vertebral body tethering
A tethering procedure requires only a handful of small incisions. Small screws are placed along the outside edge of the abnormal spinal curve and a strong, flexible cord is threaded through the screws. When the cord is tightened, the spine straightens. As the child grows, the spine may straighten more.
At Mayo Clinic, treatment options may include:
- Vertebral body tethering (VBT). This procedure requires only a handful of small incisions. Screws are placed along the outside edge of the abnormal spinal curve and a strong, flexible cord is threaded through the screws. When the cord is tightened, the spine straightens. VBT preserves motion and spinal growth, but it's not suited to all types of scoliosis.
- Expanding rod. If the scoliosis is progressing rapidly at a young age, surgeons can attach one or two expandable rods along the spine that can adjust in length as the child grows. The rods are lengthened every 3 to 6 months either with surgery or at the doctor's office using a remote control.
- Infantile (Mehta) casting. For children under 3, Mayo Clinic doctors sometimes recommend a series of body casts that are replaced every few months as the child grows.
- Robot-assisted surgery. Mayo Clinic surgeons routinely use robotic assistance during complex spinal surgeries. Imaging is often used during complicated operations to help surgical navigation. Neurologists monitor the child's spinal cord during surgery to provide early warning if it's being affected.
