Hi and welcome to sso

Each surgeon has their own take on the guidelines

Generally speaking upto 40 degrees is normal

40 degrees to 80 degrees is conservative treatment

90 degrees and above is generally surgery

that is very general and loose, some surgeons have been known to operate at 60 or 70 degrees others won't operate on curves upto 100 degrees

It all depends on a lot of factors including pain levels, psycological, appearence, mental health and a whole multitude of others

I hope that makes sense

Mark
