If scoliotic curve is severed when it is noticed than brace does not control the curve than surgery is required. The most common surgical treatment for scoliosis is a spine fusion using special stainless steel rods, hooks, and a bone graft. The rods are attached to the spine with hooks and the curved portion of the spine is carefully straightened. Then bone graft is placed over the spine to fuse it in a straight position.
