Scoliosis refers to an abnormal curvature of the spine that appears during the growth spurt before puberty. Though most cases are mild, it is possible for the condition to result in severe spinal deformities.

In most cases, the precise cause of scoliosis is unknown. However, the condition appears to involve hereditary factors because it tends to run in families.


Our physicians are able to diagnose scoliosis with a fairly straightforward process that includes:

Physical Exam: The first step is collecting your full medical history and performing a physical examination to evaluate any visible curvature.

Imaging Tests: Once the exam is complete, we will order an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis and identify the severity and extent of your condition.

You may not require treatment if you have a mild form of scoliosis. Rather, you will be monitored every few months to make sure the condition isn’t progressing.

If you have been diagnosed with a severe form of scoliosis, there are two main treatment approaches available:


If your bones are still growing, a brace that is worn day and night may prevent the curve from worsening. Today’s braces form to the body and can be worn discreetly under clothes.


A procedure known as “spinal fusion” may be recommended if you are diagnosed with severe scoliosis. With this approach, our surgeons will connect the affected vertebrae with a rod to reduce the severity of the curve and prevent your condition from progressing.
