    As people before me have said, it all depends on how severe your curve is and what type of curve you have. I had kyphosis (85˚ curvature) and the surgery made me 2 inches taller! Straightening out kyphosis probably makes you taller than straightening out scoliosis. But I'll take height over pain and a curved back any day :)

    Yes. But it is hard to predict by how much. Only your doctor or surgeon could help predict that. It would depend on how much of a curvature you have. You could gain less than 1/2 inch, or you could gain over an inch. There is no way for anyone here to make a guess without at least seeing you to see how "curvy" your spine looks.

    Straightening up your spine will not have any affect on your height, however; it will do wonders for your posture.
