    The best hospitals/clinics/centers/doctors that specialize in scoliosis treatment

    I am seeking treatment for my 50 degree lumbar ideopathic curve.
    I wish to know the best places and doctors I can go to to seek treatment.
    I want to know the best in the country and the best in the East Coast ( i live in VA).

    My email is jamessilva17@gmail.com

    I am scheduling appointments at UVa and at Baylor University in Texas.
    I know these are reputable places, but i want to know of the better ones, the best ones.
