I was devastated to find out that my eleven year old daughter would need spinal fusion surgery. We met with Dr. Widmann and he was knowledgeable, clear and reassuring. I felt confident about his skills after doing my own research and speaking with him in length about what to expect before, during and after surgery. He was very respectful, honest and to the point. The surgery was a success and I could not be more grateful to him and the staff at HSS.

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!
