Type of spine curve: There are multiple reasons for scoliosis &one is known as a congenital type which is when there is a deformity of the bones (vertebra) of the spine that one is born with & leads to an early curvature of the spine. Some don't need surgery & others do. They tend to not respond to bracing & can be very progressive in terms of a rapidly worsening curve & may be associated with other medical issues.See 2 more doctor answers

Orthopedic follow up: Congenital scoliosis should be followed closely by an orthopedic doc that treats scoliosis. The issue is usually that one side of the spine grows faster than the other due to failure of one or more segments to separate or form. It progresses over time as the child grows.See 1 more doctor answer
I'v a 10 yrs. Old daughter who has an s shape congenital scoliosis more than 45*, there was no noticable progress & no pain. What are the options?
Early and often care: Although there has been no progression yet, with your daughter at age 10 and either early in puberty or not even entering puberty yet, now is the time to be very aggressive about monitoring for changes and intervening early. This is not a little 10 degree curve - she is already at 45, and you don't want much progression before you would get agressive with early therapies. See spine doctor often!See 1 more doctor answer
Not typically: Not typically. The two exception to that are if the curve has been allowed to progress to an exceptionally large degree that it effects lung or cardiac function, which is quite rare nowadays. Or two, if the patient has other associated conditions with the scoliosis such as congenital heart or kidney problems which can be seen in a small percentage of cases.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Yes you could see an orthopedic surgeon with a specialty for the treatment of scoliosis. Also, if you list your specific question on healthtap, I will try to look for it and answer it if I can. Thank you.
Can surgery be used to treat congenital scoliosis in children? My child was born with congenital scoliosis. Can she have surgery to correct it, or does she have to wait until she's an adult? .
Talk to MD: You have to find out wether the scoliosis is affecting the child. In severe cases scoliosis can cause pain and interfere with breathing. In minor cases it is detectable on examination, but is not interfering with the patient's lifestyle. If it is the latter case you may not need surgery at all. Talk to your md about options.See 2 more doctor answers
