Magnetic growing rods

There is a new technique being trialled in Melbourne which uses magnetic growing rods. My specialists here in Sydney are also trialling a similar type of system. They have done one surgery at present, with another to be completed soon. This technique may be an option for Evelyne. The benefit is the rods can be extended without 6 monthly surgeries. There is a recent article below on a 7 year old boy who recently had the surgery.
