Sagittal imbalance may cause significant pain and functional limitations for patients. Successful surgical treatment of sagittal plane deformities can result in a significant improvement in quality of life for the patient. These complex procedures may be associated with a relatively high rate of complications. Careful planning, meticulous surgical technique, and vigilant postoperative follow-up may help to minimize the occurrence of complications and optimize patient outcomes.
