Please bring this passport with you to your IWK pre-op appointment and on day of surgery. Scoliosis is a sideways curving of the spine, affecting nearly 1 in 10 children and adolescents. It causes the spine to look like the letter ‘S’ or ‘C’ instead of a straight ‘I’. In scoliosis, the spine’s vertebrae may also be rotated, causing one shoulder blade or trunk muscle to be more prominent than the other.
