Question Anyone have a child with scoliosis?

I took my kids for their yearly physical and the dr was very concerned with my 15yo sons back and curvature of his spine. He said the reason one of his ribs sticks way out, is due to this curvature. I am peeved at our old dr because he told us 2 yrs in a row that 'It's just the way he's made, he's FINE'.. So, this dr had me take him for a series of xrays and they called me yesterday saying he does indeed have significant scoliosis and will likely have to be in a brace and have referred him to an orthopedic specialist for next week. I just don't really know what to expect with this.. anyone have a child with this same problem?
