Re: what kind of doctor to you see for scoliosis

Hey! Welcome to the boards!

I was diagnosed for Scoliosis when I was 12, and I went to see an Orthopedic Surgeon. Don't let their title fool you - the fact that they're a surgeon doesn't mean they see surgery-only patients. I've never had an oporation for my scoliosis, and I've always seen and Orthopedic surgeon.

Hope this helped!

Yes, an orthopedic surgeon. If the patient is under 18, go to a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. If 18 or older, try to find a doctor who specializes in adult scoliosis, and preferably, one who has done a fellowship.

I wish you the best,
Emily
