"We want you to get the right care, for the best possible outcomes" - Dr Michael Selby

We’re committed to ensuring scoliosis patients get the right advice and the right treatment, sooner.

Patients with scoliosis can achieve better long term results with earlier intervention. However, current wait times for assessment and treatment in South Australia means many patients are missing out on the opportunity for their best treatment outcomes.  

The South Australian Scoliosis Service was formed to give these patients faster access to initial assessment and diagnosis, and to a range of non-surgical and surgical treatment options. 

No referral is necessary for our non-surgical services, surgical consultation will require a referral by a GP.
