Does Your Child Have Scoliosis? How Minimally Invasive Surgery Could Help

If your child has scoliosis, you and your doctor may be discussing routes to treat it. In mild cases, your doctor may just want to observe the problem as your child grows and have him or her attend physical therapy. However, if your child has a more severe case, more invasive methods — like surgery — may need to be considered. If left untreated, scoliosis can damage the joints and cause arthritis in the spine.
