The Scoliosis Research Society has prepared this web site to provide patients, and in the case of children, their parents, with a better understanding of scoliosis,
its diagnosis and management. This information is intended as a
supplement to the information your physician will provide you. Just
as no two individuals are exactly alike, no two patients with a
spinal deformity are the same. Therefore, your orthopaedic surgeon
will be the most important source of information about the
management of your particular spinal problem.
