Thanks for writing to us.
I understand your concern. The curve is quite big and need to be addressed. Another option is VAPTER- Chest to pelvis rod to correct the scoliosis. Also need to find out if he has hemivertebra as that need to be address because it is the root cause for severity of the curve.Thanks.
