Ryan's Story

When he was eight weeks old, Ryan Magadan was diagnosed with craniosynostosis. His parents traveled from Miami to San Antonio to visit UHS and consult with David F. Jimenez, MD, FACS, about their son’s case. Raider, Ryan’s father, told us that after talking to Dr. Jimenez he was confident his son was in “the best hands.” Dr. Jimenez met with the Magadan family on a Monday and performed Ryan’s surgery that Thursday; Raider described the experience as “perfect.”

The Magadan family also had high praise for the director of the Cranial Remolding Program, Darren J. Poidevin, CPO, LPO. “Darren is amazing. He was very supportive. Working with him went very smoothly. Darren was there for my son since day one.”

We are happy to report that Ryan did well during his latest follow up appointment.
