This article discusses the history of treatment for idiopathic scoliosis in the Malopolska region of Poland. Surgical treatment began in the period between the two world wars, when it was introduced by associate professor Juliusz Zaremba, later the first Head of the Orthopedic Clinic at the Academy of Medicine in Cracow. Zaremba was succeeded in that post by Prof. Janina Markowa, who maintained the Clinic’s profile, in which scoliosis treatment was a prominent part. In 1976, scoliosis treatment was commenced at the Orthopedic Center in Zakopane, which has now become the only center in the Malopolska region for the treatment of spinal disorders in children.
