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.

MAGEC Growing Rod Surgery

What are MAGEC Growing Rods?
MAGEC Growing Rods are a revolutionary new surgical treatment made for children with severe spinal deformities and abnormal curvatures. The MAGEC system uses implantable rodsas well as an external remote to both brace the spine, helping to eliminate a child’s spinal curve, while allowing the child to continue in its growth cycle.

MAGEC Rods Vs. Traditional Growing Rods
For generations traditional growing rods have been used to help reduce the spinal curve created by scoliosis in young, growing children. Despite their effectiveness, growing rods require constant expansion surgery in order to keep up with the child’s growth. This generally means 10-15 surgeries before the child reaches maturity, as well as the possibility of a spinal fusion once they reach their final height.

MAGEC Rods are also surgically implanted. However, during the expansion phases, they do not require any surgery. Simply requiring a non-invasive procedure every 4-6 months. The MAGEC Rods are controlled using magnets and a remote control.

Despite their ease of use and the lack of required surgeries, the MAGEC Rods are not for everyone. In certain cases where children are far too young or that are suffering from a spinal curve that is severely progressive, the MAGEC Rods may not be the best option. Treatment with the MAGEC Growing Rods is highly dependent upon your child’s specific condition, age, size, and current growth cycle. Contact Dr. Roger Widmann today and he will help you make the right decision for you and your child.
