MAGnetic Expansion Control (MAGEC™) Spinal Growing Rods by NuVasive

Content Contributor

MAGnetic Expansion Control (MAGEC™) Spinal Growing Rods, manufactured by NuVasive, are placed along the spine through
an initial surgery, but can be adjusted in an office setting without anesthesia. They have a magnetic segment that can be adjusted with a remote control device to keep up with and guide spine growth over time. In studies, the amount of curve correction is similar to Traditional Growth Rod correction, while the number of surgeries needed throughout childhood is significantly less. Both of these systems are associated with complications, such as rod breakage, that may require intervention.
