Treatment of adult scoliosis and deformity

Adults with scoliosis and other spinal deformities can benefit from the multidisciplinary approach offered at the USC Spine Center. Adults of any age can be treated for their scoliosis or back deformity. Patients receive coordinated care from spine surgeons, podiatrists, physiatrists, vascular surgeons, occupational therapists and physiotherapists within the USC Spine Center. We also offer supportive programs for patients when applicable, including lifestyle modification and psychotherapy. Our physicians work with endocrinologists and rheumatologists to optimize the patients’ bone quality using pharmacotherapy.

Non-operative treatments offered at the USC Spine Center include physical therapy, medical management, epidural injections and facet joint injections.

Surgery is reserved for patients who are still affected by the deformity despite having received maximal non-operative treatment. Our surgeons have extensive experience treating patients with scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, flat-back deformity, ankylosing spondylitis and post-traumatic deformity, among other conditions.
