Scoliosis Outcomes Database Registry

Purpose of Study

While there are several surgical options for the correction of idiopathic scoliosis, there are few guidelines to the best surgical approach for particular forms of scoliosis. The purpose of this study is to analyze the long-term outcomes of surgical treatment of idiopathic scoliosis of all curve patterns treated by either anterior or posterior procedures. In addition, long-term outcomes of nonoperative idiopathic scoliosis will be analyzed.Basic Inclusion Criteria (requirements for being included in study)
