Hi there!

I assume you are referring to Pott’s disease of the spine. Aside anti-tubercular therapy, analgesics and physiotherapy; management would depend on the severity, spinal deformity, neurological deficits/ spinal cord compression, the site and extent of vertebral destruction etc. and may include surgical drainage of abscess, immobilization of the spine region by splintage, intramedullary hip screw/ rod to promote bone healing, hemiarthroplasty or spinal fusion etc. Management is case specific and you may like to discuss the possible options in detail with your orthopedician.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
