Description

Children’s Mercy Kansas City is one of only 20 children’s hospitals in the nation selected to participate in the early user group for the MAGEC® (MAGnetic Expansion Control) System.

In early 2015, a seven-year-old became the first patient in Kansas and Missouri to receive a new, ground-breaking treatment for scoliosis, aptly named MAGEC.

To brace the spine and minimize the progression of spinal curvature, the MAGEC system’s magnetic rods are implanted along each side of the spine during a one-time, surgical procedure.

Nigel Price, MD shares more about how MAGEC is transforming pediatric medicine during this segment of Transformational Pediatrics.
