Discover Hope for Scoliosis in Dallas

With more than 50 different types of scoliosis, there is no one-size-fits all solution. That’s why Methodist Dallas Medical Center offers numerous nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to improve your quality of life.

Why Trust Methodist Dallas for Scoliosis Treatment?

Comprehensive Approach
A scoliosis diagnosis doesn’t always mean a big surgical procedure. Our comprehensive scoliosis care provides you with many options ­­– both nonsurgical and surgical. As your treatment needs change, you have access to numerous options all in one place.

Individualized Treatment
We take the time to understand your lifestyle and provide treatment that fits your individual needs. We’re here to listen and offer you a personalized approach to your care.

Experienced Team
The independently practicing neurosurgeons on our medical staff are highly experienced in scoliosis procedures and have training in specific neurosurgical issues. Through a collaborative approach, complex cases often receive the expertise of multiple surgeons working together.

Diagnosis and Planning

Methodist Dallas offers the EOS® system, which provides a head-to-toe X-ray in one scan – with only one-third of the radiation dose of a standard X-ray. This complete imaging information avoids multiple X-rays and gives a total view of how your scoliosis affects the whole body. Using this global view of your entire body, your surgeon is better able to plan surgical procedures and customize your treatment.

Treatment Options

The majority of those with scoliosis will receive nonsurgical treatment before surgery is considered. Some options you may discuss with your physician include:

  • Observation
  • Physical therapy
  • Exercise programs
  • Bracing
  • Focused injections for pain relief
  • Surgery, including minimally invasive options

Adult Scoliosis
While scoliosis is most commonly thought of as a condition of childhood or adolescence, it affects many adults too. It’s a common concern in adults over 50 years of age. Because scoliosis in adulthood requires a different approach, our scoliosis program specializes in finding the right treatment option for these cases.

Revision Surgery

The scoliosis program at Methodist Dallas provides options for those who have previously undergone surgery or multiple surgeries for scoliosis. In some cases, revision surgery may be the right option. However, we’re committed to giving honest guidance on your condition and finding solutions that meet your individual situation.
