Abstract

With increasing life expectancy and the steadily increasing population of aging adults in the developed world, degenerative diseases are becoming increasingly common to the clinician. Knowing how to manage such conditions with optimal therapeutic benefit, minimal suffering, and minimal costs is necessary for the success of a health-care system. Degenerative disease of the spine in elderly patients is common. In 1.4-12% of the adult population, spinal column degeneration results in a condition known as adult degenerative scoliosis [1-3]. The average age of presentation is in the seventh decade of life, with progressive degeneration.
