Re: Scoliosis- surgery?

I hope by now you have gotten help. I too have scoliosis, but wasn't ever bad enough to have surgery until several years ago my osteo-arthritis made the scoliosis very progressive because of the degeneration it causes and I developed another curve in my low back and sacrum. My rib cage had moved to the left and my right hip got to be much lower than the left. Some of my vertebrae were tilted down toward the pelvis so it was painful to bend forward. I found an excellent doctor at center for advance medicine, St Louis Mo by the name of Michael P. Kelly. He did the surgery in March of this year and it was a success.
