Specialty Physician Consultation – 1-hour examination and assessment with related review and treatment recommendations.
Scoliosis is a curving of the spine. The spine curves away from the middle or sideways. Viewed from the rear, the spine of an individual with typical scoliosis may look more like an ‘S’ or a ‘C’ than a straight line. It is typically classified as either congenital (caused by vertebral anomalies present at birth), idiopathic (cause unknown).
The total cost of the scoliosis consultation includes a one-hour consultation with a specialist. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
