Scoliosis is the most common form of spinal deformity and can often affect children and teenagers. It is caused by the spine becoming abnormally curved, which can lead to painful and debilitating side effects. At ProMed SPINE in Los Angeles, our expert spine surgeons can help patients overcome scoliosis through innovative techniques including surgery.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a spinal deformity that is most often present in children who are between 10 to 15 years old. Common signs of the presence of scoliosis include uneven shoulders, waistline, or rib cage height. Other symptoms include bad posture, back pain, and leg weakness. After being diagnosed with the condition, patients have several treatment options that include both surgical and non-surgical techniques. It is important to treat this condition as early as possible so that it does not worsen over time.
What is the Best Scoliosis Treatment?
After performing a thorough evaluation of the patient, one of our scoliosis treatment specialists will make a treatment recommendation that he feels will best meet the patient’s needs. If the patient has a spine curvature of less than 40 degrees and the condition is not progressing quickly, we may recommend non-surgical treatments such as back braces. If non-surgical treatments are not adequate, our surgeons can perform levoscoliosis surgery in order to correct the spinal deformity. Most often, the best treatment is spinal fusion surgery which can be performed in a minimally invasive way. Our spine surgeons are renowned experts at performing minimally invasive Los Angeles surgery and will only perform surgery if it is absolutely necessary. Patients can trust that they are in the best hands with the highly skilled and qualified Los Angeles neurosurgeons at ProMed SPINE.
