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.

MARFAN SCOLIOSIS

Marfan scoliosis or Marfan Syndrome scoliosis is a type of abnormal curvature within the spine as a result of Marfan Syndrome. Marfan syndrome is a genetic mutation within the chromosomes responsible for collagen cross-linking. Most patients who suffer from Marfan scoliosis and thus Marfan Syndrome, are tall and lanky with very long, gangly arms and legs. These patients suffer from a spinal curvature that is highly progressive and almost always require surgery, as opposed to bracing or other non-invasive measures. The presence of Marfan Scoliosis is due to a highly increased laxity of ligaments throughout the body, as well as the spine. Marfan scoliosis patients also suffer from enlarged spinal nerves, that will often erode into the bones of the vertebrae. This issue makes spinal instrumentation very difficult to perform and will often require the care of a highly experienced spinal surgeon like Dr. Widmann, especially when dealing with children. While instrumentation surgery is possible, it is far more likely that patient’s suffering from Marfan scoliosis will require a long spinal fusion surgery, often a last resort, again, especially when dealing with children.
