PurposeTo evaluate the cost differences between a conventional growth rod system (CGRS) and magnetic controlled growth rods (MCGR) in treating early onset scoliosis (EOS) over a projected 5 year period. We hypothesise that the high initial outlay for MCGR would be recouped from fewer admissions and surgical procedures over the lifetime of the implant.MethodsThe costs of all aspects of treatment for 14 patients undergoing conversion from CGRS to MGRS were collected over a 3 year period.
