What is it and what are my treatment options?
Scoliosis occurs when the spine curves to the side. The condition is most common in adolescents and often goes undiagnosed unless it is severe. If symptoms are experienced, an appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) spine specialist should be made.
Symptoms & Causes
Scoliosis symptoms include:
- One side of the hip higher than the other
- Tilted waist
- Uneven shoulders
- Uneven shoulder blades
Severe scoliosis may put pressure on the chest and lungs. Chest pain and breathing difficulties may present.
Many scoliosis cases do not need to be treated. If symptoms become bothersome, a CONA spine specialist may recommend a corrective brace. Surgery may be recommended to treat severe scoliosis. A CONA spine specialist straightens and fixates the spine.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.
These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
