My daughter is almost 12 years old and has scoliosis. I can see the curve getting worse. How often should she see a doctor?

Thanks
Susan

My daughter was seen every 12 weeks from the time she was diagnosed (and braced) until the time they decided she needed surgery (that was about a year later). There was then a six month wait for surgery during which time they didn't check her again (as the decision has already been made), but we were told to call if things started to look wildly worse.

Susan,

When was your daughter last seen? If you can see changes in the curve, you might want to contact her doctor and see what he says.
