Pediatric Scoliosis: A Prospective Study (PPSS)

 

A multi-center study enrolling patients undergoing surgical treatment of scoliosis to prevent progression of curvature or to correct trunk disfigurement. The purpose of this study is to assemble a database and compare the surgical results of patients who have pediatric idiopathic scoliosis. It is hoped that the database will allow improved classification and standardization of aspects of this condition, such as degree and angle of curvature. Participation includes filling out questionnaires before and after surgery at clinic visits and releasing your x-ray and clinical information to be used in the database. 

 

CRITERIA:

  • Age 8-18
  • Diagnosed with Pediatric Idiopathic Scoliosis
  • Undergoing surgical intervention
