It's a new type of surgery (started in 2005) that allows the doctor to treat the spine without making huge incisions, instead they make a 3 milimeter incision and use special tools with cameras to see inside of you. They treat all sorts of spinal issues and symtoms associated with Scoliosis ,and are now usuing this method to treat Scoliosis!
It's not an option for everyone yet, but some cases can be treated using this type of surgery.
Check out the link for more info.
It's really cool!!!
