Individuals with scoliosis have a number of treatment options at their disposal. Common conservative treatments include bracing, oral medications, and injections. Individuals with severe scoliosis may require minimally-invasive surgery.
The best way to determine if you require surgery for scoliosis is to consult with your Illinois neurosurgeon.
