Dr. Munish C. Gupta is treating patients at the following hospitals:


corrected idiopathic scoliosis x-ray Dr. Munish C. Gupta specializes in the correction of spinal deformity in pediatric and adult patients, particularly scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, revision surgery, and flatback deformity. Surgical procedures include anterior release and posterior spinal fusion, as well as spinal osteototomies: vertebral column resection and pedicle subtraction osteotomy.

Dr. Gupta has extensive expertise using a four-rod Pedicle subtraction osteotomy that has been shown to prevent rod breakages and reduce complications such as pseudarthroses.



Lateral curvature of the spine greater than ten degrees, with rotation of the vertebrae within the curve. Rotation of the vertebrae also occurs which produces the rib cage and flank muscle asymmetry.


A forward, exaggerated rounding of the back, most common in older women due to osteoporosis, but can also occur in infants and teens.


Occurs when one vertebra slips forward onto the vertebra below it, causing numbness or pain in the back or legs.

Revision Surgery

Additional surgery to correct a problem that is worsening or did not heal properly after previous procedures.

Flatback Deformity

Forward posture usually due to a flattened lumbar spine from postoperative or degenerative changes. When viewed from the side, the patient’s head may be several centimeters in front of their hips.
