Caption: Spinal fusion surgery. Surgical incision in the back of a patient affected by scoliosis (curvature of the spine) undergoing spinal fusion. The curved spine (white) can be seen at centre. In this procedure, bone harvested from from one of the patient's ribs will be grafted to the vertebrae so that when it heals they form one solid bone mass. This causes the vertebral column to become rigid, holding it straight. The procedure prevents worsening of the curve at the expense of spinal movement.
