In brief: Congenital scoliosis

You grandson requires regular follow up and review ( almost every 6 months) to monitor his spinal deformity progression, lung/chest function and his neurological status.
He might require Physio, bracing and surgery should these conditions progress.. A Paeds and spinal prophetic surgeon should be rep seeing him regularly.

In brief: Chest & spine

issues need to be monitored by your grandson's baby doctor. He/she will keep an eye on what is happening and treat as needed.
Catching things early on as they develop can make things easier. Peace and good health.
