Scoliosis must be remedied at a young age
Scoliosis - the condition wherein the spine curves due to genetic and environmental factors that may be diagnosed from early childhood to adolescence - must be immediately addressed, according to a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon in the past 18 years. Interviewed, Dr. Zaid Al Aubaidi added: "I also believe that all congenital deformities like all spinal problems and issues and not only scoliosis must be included in health insurance policies. Idiopathic scoliosis appears after the age of 13." Al Aubaidi attends to between two and three young to teen-age scoliotic patients every week at his clinic in Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery in Dubai, coming from across the UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Jordan."
