Treatment for All Types of Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a treatable condition and should not be allowed to become a disabling one. We specialize in diagnosing, managing and treating all types of scoliosis: idiopathic, congenital and neuromuscular. Our specialists will ensure the best possible outcome whether the curve is mild and just needs monitoring, or severe enough that surgery is the best option. When scoliosis is treated correctly, it should not affect a child’s ability to lead a normal life.

Our Researchers Are Advancing the Treatment of Scoliosis

At the JVL Research Center at OIC, our biomechanical engineers and pediatric orthopedic surgeons collaborate regularly to address clinical and surgical problems in the lab. Our team has developed several in vitro models that allow surgeons to compare the effectiveness of various corrective maneuvers in the laboratory. These in vitro models offer the advantage of testing surgical procedures pre-operatively.

Recent clinical research conducted by our scoliosis team has led to improved osteotomy techniques and less blood loss. Our current research projects include federally funded studies on the genetics of scoliosis and a smart implant coating that reduces surgical site infections. The research projects focusing on scoliosis and related surgeries have been published in major international journals.
