Hello, Cobb method is an extremely accurate measuring technique to calculate the curvature of the spine and its progression. Surgery for adolescents with scoliosis is only recommended when their curves are greater than 40 to 45 degrees and continuing to progress, and for most patients with curves that are greater than 50 degrees. Your deformity seem to be thoracolumbar, For curves that are mainly at the thoracolumbar junction (T12-L1), the scoliosis surgery can be done entirely as an anterior approach.But this is not a minor surgery ,post surgical complication are there
