Default magnetic growth rods

Hi Everyone,
My 6 year old daughter is due to have an operation on Monday for insertion of growth rods and then an op every 4 months to extend them this will go on until she is 15 then they will fuse her spine; my daughter has 15 other medical conditions and doesn't go to well with anesthetic, I am thinking of cancelling her op and taking her interstate to Melbourne where they do the magnetic growth rods that way my daughter will have one op to have the rods put in then another op when she is 15 this means 2 operations instead of 15 or 20.
What are everyone's opinions and who has had the magnetic growth rods? Can you please tell me your experience and how often you would need check ups. Thank you
