News just in from our client, Dr. Matthew D. Hepler about Thoracic Kyphosis: When Is Surgery Necessary?

Thoracic kyphosis occurs when there’s an excessive curve of the thoracic spine, producing a hump in the mid back and a forward stooping posture. According to the journal Neurosurgery, this condition may be experienced by 20 to 40 percent of the elderly, especially among women between the ages of 50 to 70.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the majority of cases do not require treatment but some patients may prefer to wear a back brace and do regular exercises for posture improvement.

However, our spine surgeon in Palm Beach County explains that for thoracic kyphosis patients who experience worsening curvature, increasing pain, or decreasing function surgical treatment can reliably correct the curve and restore posture and function.
