The Risk Severity Score tool estimates the probability of a
surgical site infection for nonidiopathic scoliosis. Please note the risk
percentages provided to you by the surgical risk calculator are only
estimates. The risk estimate only takes certain information into account.
There may be other factors that are not included in the estimate which may
increase or decrease the risk. This tool does not substitute clinical
judgment. Columbia Orthopedics is not responsible for medical decisions that
may be made based on the risk calculator estimates, since these estimates are
provided for informational purposes.
