The authors report their preferred method for correcting Scheuermann disease via a combined anterior-posterior approach; their procedure is associated with a lower morbidity rate than the standard approach. Twenty-month followup examination demonstrated excellent maintenance of correction. The results satisfied the requirements to function without restriction in a vigorous military environment.
