2 stage surgery

Hi new-bee here. My docter wants to do a 2 day surgery to remove my Harrington rod that was placed in 1968 and do a Spinal fusion that would correct my scoliosis.  How on earth is a 2 stage 2 day surgery accomplished? He says the total surgery would take 8-9 hours so they would divide it up.  Has anyone had this done and would like to hear peoples thoughts on spinal fusion.
