Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a condition of the spine in which the spine curves to varying degrees in an "S" shape, either to the right or left side. Scoliosis is diagnosed as one of three types: Idiopathic (of unknown origin); Congenital, in which the bones are asymmetrical at birth; or Neuromuscular, in which the scoliosis is symptomatic of a systemic condition, such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or paralysis.

Led by highly specialized orthopedic surgeons, the Spine Care Institute and Scoliosis Service at Hospital for Special Surgery is recognized as a world leader in the management of complex spinal deformities in both children and adults.
