Successful surgical treatment of sagittal plane deformities is crucial because it can significantly improve patient's quality of life. However, this reconstructive surgery for deformity is challenging for both patient and physician. Osteoporosis and systemic disease are important considerations in preparation of the surgery because they may be associated with the relatively high rate of complications.
