I have had a positive experience with Dr. Koffie and the Neuroscience Group since I was first referred near the end of February. I was able to schedule a consultation quickly and met Dr. Koffie. He clearly explained my diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Throughout the entire process I have felt heard and cared for by Dr. Koffie and his team, as well as the support staff at the Neuroscience Group.

Individualized Scoliosis Care

Several things are used to determine the proper treatment of scoliosis. We take the following factors into account when developing your individual plan:

  •  Curve Size
  • Location of the Curve
  • Patient Age
  • How much growth progression is left in the spine

As highly dedicated doctors for scoliosis treatment, our scoliosis team will use your information to determine the progress of your curve and discuss what that means for you and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions About Scoliosis

What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a side-to-side curvature of the spine that is >10 degrees when measured on an XRAY. This curve (or crooked spine) may resemble an S or C. The curve can be in the upper, middle or lower spine.

What Are the Signs of Scoliosis?

Common signs of scoliosis are:

  • One shoulder blade is more noticeable than the other
  • Clothing hangs unevenly
  • One hip is higher than the other
  • Uneven waist

What Doesn't Cause Scoliosis?

Posture and/or use of a backpack are NOT causes of scoliosis.

What Does Cause Scoliosis?

Adolescent “idiopathic” scoliosis is a genetic condition. The word idiopathic means unknown, as it is unknown why the curve develops.  A family may have more than one member with scoliosis, meaning it is inherited.
