What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that sometimes also includes rotation of the spine. It is different from other spinal curvature conditions.
In kyphosis, the spine is curved forward resulting in a rounded back and lordosis is a condition in which the spine is curved backwards. Scoliosis is not a disease, but a condition which can occur in otherwise healthy individuals.

The team of experts at our Scoliosis clinic led by Dr. Michael Antony, is focused on treating your scoliosis in the most patient-centered, effective manner possible.
