Scoliosis, Kyphosis and Spinal Deformity

Scoliosis or curvature of the spine is most frequently seen in adolescent females. It should be monitored carefully throughout growth because progression can cause back pain and deformity. Bracing is sometimes effective in preventing the progression of scoliosis. Surgical fusion is only necessary in cases with significant curve magnitude or progression.
