Hi Aileen, I had severe scoliosis as a teenager and I underwent the surgery at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto to insert the harrington rods. I'm much older now (can't give my age away!). Not sure what country you are from, but today there are a lot of advances (rather than the harrington rod) that you should explore with your doctor. Some may not be as expensive.
