ScoliScore

January 27, 2011

The Scoliosis Center of North Carolina now offers ScoliScore testing!  ScoliScore is a genetic test offered to children between 9-13 years of age with scoliotic curves between 10-25 degrees.  The test was developed by Axial Biotech and Depuy Spine as a tool to determine the likelyhood of scoliotic curve progression.  The ScoliScore test is performed by collecting a saliva sample at our office.  This sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.  A couple weeks later the results are reported back to us in the form of a numerical value or “score”.  We then use this score combined with other clinical information to determine the best individualized treatment plan for the child.
