An Australian directory of spinal specialists (orthopaedic surgeons) who have a particular interest in the management of spinal curvature (scoliosis and kyphosis)

NSW | ACT | SA | QLD | VIC | WA

A state-by-state directory has been prepared. It is not possible to recommend any one accredited specialist. The correct procedure is for the family doctor to initiate the referral process.

It is to be noted that this directory may be incomplete at present. Only the surgeons who have agreed to have their contact details available are listed.

There are also, as indicated below, scoliosis clinics in some public hospitals and in most children's hospitals throughout the country.
