Rods in girl's back lengthened magnetically without surgery
Seven-year-old Lexie Craig has her rods lengthened magnetically at Children's Mercy Hospital. Lexie's spine was very curved. "She complained a certain hip that would hurt the most from leaning on one side," said Amanda Craig, Lexie's mother. The scoliosis resulted from a genetic disease, spinal muscular atrophy, that's left Lexie unable to walk.
