Scoliosis is when the bones of the spine curve from side to side instead of being straight. If the curve gets large enough, it can be painful and cause problems. Nemours Children's orthopedic surgeons and other scoliosis specialists have the experience and skills to diagnose and treat scoliosis as your child grows.
