SCOLIOSIS, SPINE, & REVISION SURGERY FOR OUR Lancaster TX Residents
PATIENTS SEEKING THE BEST SCOLIOSIS & SPINE TREATMENT COME FROM Lancaster TX to see our doctors in Dallas, Plano & Frisco, TX
Our specialty, Scoliosis Diagnosis, Treatment, and Care, helps a small portion of the 12 million people worldwide who suffer with spine pain. Although many people possess some degree of curvature of the spine, most experience little or no discomfort.
Adult Scoliosis is a curve of the spine. In most patients, no surgery is needed; however, in patients who have an excessive curve and it compromises breathing or walking, surgery can help correct those complications. Adult Scoliosis can vary from a minor problem, where it just needs to be watched, to chronic pain and a severe deformity.
PEDIATRIC SCOLIOSIS Treatment for residents of Lancaster TX
More often than not, children with scoliosis can be treated with a brace, but in cases where patients experience an increase in curvature and are in pain, surgery may be needed. For reasons unknown, girls are more prone to scoliosis in adolescence than boys.
CONGENITAL SCOLIOSIS Treatment for residents of Lancaster TX
Congenital scoliosis, a spinal deformity, caused by a birth defect, produces a sideways curvature of the spine. For example, the spine may rotate or twist, pulling the ribs along with it to form a curve, often causing a hump.
IDIOPATHIC SCOLIOSIS Treatment for residents of Lancaster TX
Approximately 90 percent of scoliosis cases are idiopathic, making it the most common type. The term means that doctors can’t pinpoint the cause of the spinal curvature.
DEGENERATIVE SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT for residents of Lancaster TX
Degenerative scoliosis describes a sideways curvature of the spine that results from the degeneration of the joints and discs in the spine. Also, this condition and the resulting problems of the spine usually occur gradually as a person ages.
Thoracic scoliosis refers to an abnormal sideways curve located in the middle (or thoracic) portion of the spine. This is the most common location for scoliosis curves, and the first sign many patients notice is an asymmetry of the chest, rib cage, and shoulder blades.
We are a member of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS). This society is an international society that was founded in 1966 with 35 members. It has gained recognition as one of the world’s premier spine societies. The SRS has maintained a commitment to research and education in the field of spinal deformities.

Neuromuscular Scoliosis is a spinal curvature that occurs in children with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and spina bifida. These types of disorders can prevent the spine from being properly supported by the muscles and lead to scoliosis and other abnormal curvatures of the spine.
