In brief: Scoliosis

The indications for scoliosis surgery are based on the degree of the deformity and not the age of the patient.
When the curve is greater than 40 degrees or progressive in nature then surgery is recommended. Consider a second opinion with a surgeon who specializes in spinal deformities.
