This study will explore the relationship between skeletal muscle and physical activity in scoliosis patients to provide insight into both the etiology of scoliosis and possible ways to mitigate the potential harm of treatment.

The Researchers want to assess the short-term safety of Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering (AVBT) in skeletally immature subjects with moderate to severe scoliosis.

This is a survey to help understand the influences related to the decision for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis treatment (observation vs. bracing vs. surgery). The investigator then plans to create a decision aid to help families when making a decision about the treatment choice being presented to them.
The purpose of this study is to determine pre-surgical and post-surgical changes in gait stability and free-living activity. The information collected in this study will be used to guide surgical interventions and achieve better functional outcomes.
Analysis of video encounters between providers, patients, and families will be used to develop a shared decision making tool for patients deciding between surgery and observation for scoliosis treatment.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the risk of scoliosis progression based on local three-dimensional vertebral and pelvic measurements present on initial evaluation. The proposed new study aims at refining and testing the external validity of this model in a larger cohort. The next step towards using the new model in the clinical setting is to redesign the model and to externally validate the model by measuring the agreement between the new method and the traditional Cobb angle at maturity in a larger multicenter study. The ultimate goal of this research project will be to validate this new predictive model and finally transfer this new predictive tool in the hands of clinicians treating AIS.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether using a blood test called thromboelastogram (TEG) to manage patients undergoing multi-level spinal fusion surgery will reduce complications after surgery compared with the standard practices.
The purpose of this study is to gather samples for identifying genetic factors that make children susceptible to ideopathic scoliosis and influence disease progression.
