        This program responds to the treatment of spinal deformities: scoliosis, kyphosis and kyphoscoliosis.  It also includes surgical procedures for herniated disc injuries and vertebral epiphyseal displacement.

        As part of the treatment of complex traumatic conditions or serious after-effects caused by dislocations or fractures, Cuba has successfully developed a line of work in spine surgery. At the same time, it has one of the most important and complete orthopedic hospital infrastructures in the world, with the conditions to strengthen the rigor of this specialty on the island, the medical guild that supports it, as well as the quality of its services.
