Statistics tell us that millions of people here in the United States are affected by scoliosis.  Scoliosis is a side to side curvature of the spine, unlike the natural front to back curves. Patients, young and old, who present with insignificant curves of the spine, need not undergo specialized treatments, where those who present with large curves can ultimately suffer from a myriad of health issues caused by the scoliosis.  The many health issues that individuals can suffer from include fatigue, muscle pain, back pain, spinal arthritis, or even breathing issues.

For those persons in need of specialized, comprehensive scoliosis treatment, the professionals here at the NYSI are the ideal team for you.  Our spine and back specialists skillfully treat the varying degrees and types of scoliosis, like the degenerative or common idiopathic types.  As a result of our comprehensive approach to treating patients with scoliosis the dedicated team of specialized physicians here at the NYSI has been recognized as a world class scoliosis center.  We offer provide and prescribe extensive care and treatment options for both children and adults, because we understand the impact it can have on individuals of all ages. *

The type and extent of scoliosis treatment rendered by our spine doctors to our West Islip patients stricken with scoliosis is highly dependent upon the severity of the patient’s spine curvature. In some cases, it may be necessary for our back surgeons to resort to specialized surgeries.  The certified and highly skilled neck surgeons at our nationally ranked center, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, have years of knowledge and overall experience.* Our back surgeons have offered lectures around the world on the topic of scoliosis and have even authored many scoliosis treatment publications.
