Scoliosis Education and Outreach
When it comes to scoliosis, we at The Anand Spine Group believe that education and outreach are critical to halting curvature progression as early as possible. Because some cases we evaluate do not necessitate immediate surgical treatment, we also want to serve as a resource for those who need assistance.
