Words cannot express how impressed my family is with this incredible doctor. My 12 yr old daughter had spinal fusion T2-L3. Dr. Widmann did an exceptional job from start to finish. My daughter had seen two other surgeons prior to him. She was brought to tears by how he treated her with such respect and dignity. He was the first doctor who actually spoke directly to her. Shook her hand and asked her if she had anymore questions. Explained everything and without any pressure. Results are amazing!. Dr. Widmann performed scoliosis correction surgery on my 13 year old daughter. Dr. Widmann and his team made us feel completely at ease despite the circumstances. The surgery was a huge success - we are 7 months post surgery and have had no issues at all. Our daughter is a competitive soccer player and she was back on the pitch exactly when Dr. Widmann said she would be. Everyone is amazed by how quickly and how well she recovered. Could not have asked for a better experience or outcome! My 13 Year old Daughter had surgery done by Doctor Widmann @ the hospital for Special surgery. The surgery was completed at about 3:00 P.M. on Monday, Friday at 11:00 A.M. She walked out of the hospital, Well by Law the hospital was required to wheel her down to the car but she easily could have walked. She left with very little pain. It has now just been 2 weeks and she is very active, too active in my opinion but regardless recovery has been the exact opposite as I had expected. The Hospital for special surgery was amazing, in every aspect from the janitors right up to the head Doctor. Nursing staff, Therapists, food service, every employee of the hospital were the most respectful, caring and amazing people I have ever met. Even the food was great, healthy, well put together meals, as I also ate every meal of the day there also. I would recommend 100% Dr. Roger Widmann & The Hospital for special surgery My daughter was recently operated on by Dr. Widmann for severe scoliosis. Dr. Widmann provided us with all the info we needed to make the best decision for our daughter. We felt extremely comfortable having him do the surgery and her results have been nothing short of amazing. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Widmann.

HSS Promotes Early Child Scoliosis Detection During Awareness Month

In a recent article published in the Paramus Daily Voice, Roger F. Widmann, MD, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, discusses early child scoliosis detection as part of a five segment series.

Dr. Widmann mentions, “Scoliosis is usually detected by a pediatrician or school nurse during school screening or parent (often times some asymmetry of the rib cage may be noted while a child is in a bathing suit or when trying on clothes). A child with scoliosis may have a protruding scapula or uneven hips, where one leg appears longer.”

Dr. Widmann continues, “At HSS, in children younger than ten years of age, an MRI of the entire spine is recommended. MRI images can help the orthopedist detect the presence of other problems such as syrinx, a cyst in the spinal cord, or tethered cord, in which the spinal cord is abnormally attached to the bony spine.”
