In brief: Pediatric Ortho

You need a pediatric orthopedist who specializes in the treatment of childhood/adolescent scoliosis.
These folks usually work at the nearest children's hospital.

In brief: See below

Try looking for a physiatrist or orthopedic doctor to work with you on this issue.
If there is no clinical reason for surgery at this time, then pt and a brace may be a perfectly good solution.
