Indications for Surgery

  • Tethered spinal cord symptoms: Any symptom of tethered cord including bladder complaints such as incontinence, back pain, scoliosis, or weakness are indications for considering surgical intervention. All other potential sources of these complaints must be excluded as the pathology of a normally positioned conus with tethered cord symptoms is so uncommon.
