Overview of Scoliosis Care
Scoliosis is a disorder of the spine in which the vertebrae actually rotate and a curve is created in either the upper or lower back. Patients can experience a mild case with little pain or disfigurement and little change throughout life or a more severe case, where patients face an increase in curvature and pain and disfigurement which can cause difficulties walking and even breathing.
Baylor Scott & White Health gives new hope to people suffering from the pain and disfigurement of scoliosis — even those who previously thought their condition was untreatable.
Treatment for scoliosis often includes observation, bracing and surgery. If surgery is needed, we have physicians on the medical staff who specialize in advanced surgical options to straighten spines curved due to scoliosis.
A surgeon trained to care for scoliosis can:
- Identify whether surgery is needed
- Determine which type of surgery is best
- Perform safe and effective scoliosis surgery
