Patient Safety is a top priority at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Whether you are a healthcare professional, a patient or a member of the media, the information collected on this Web site shows how you can prevent medical errors. Some people might say this is overly cautious. We say in surgery, there is no such thing.
Scoliosis is a disorder of the spine. It's a disorder in which the vertebrae actually rotate, and a curve is created either in the upper or the lower back.
Keeping up with your program after you finish rehab will help maintain the strength and flexibility of the muscles that support your knee. This increases your chances of remaining active for many years to come.
