Highly -Specialized Scoliosis Treatment, Expertise and Experience
Scoliosis treatment is based on the age of the person, the size and severity of the curve, and the risk of progression. The risk of progression is based on age at diagnosis, the size of the curve (as measured using X-rays of the spine), and skeletal age (which can be determined by the Risser sign).
Nonsurgical treatment- This includes either routine exams your scoliosis doctor, Todd Peters, to check for any curve progression or the use of a brace to stop a spinal curve from getting worse. Children usually have these checkups about every four to six months, while adults are usually checked about once each year.
Surgical treatment- Surgery can be used to insert implants to hold the spine in place or fuse the spine together so that the curve cannot get worse. Scoliosis surgeon Todd Peter, MD specializes in minimally invasive techniques to treat scolios.
