Scoliosis in Adults

Adults can have one of two types of scoliosis: idiopathic scoliosis, which usually begins in adolescence and progresses into adulthood; and degenerative scoliosis, which occurs as a result of age-related wear and tear leading to a curved spine. Not all scoliosis patients require treatment, and even fewer require surgery. Join national leaders Michael Kelly, MD, MSc, and Jacob Buchowski, MD, MS, as they discuss scoliosis in adults and when treatment for spinal deformity is needed.
