Via his Main Line Medical Exercise division, Schwab helps young scoliosis patients by strengthening the muscles near the spine with a torso-rotation weight machine. The goal is that new spine growth will come in straighter. Schwab says one child reduced her curvature by almost half. “These kids are working out twice a week,” he says. “Doctors aren’t giving credit to the exercise, but they’re telling parents to keep doing whatever they’re doing. We’re helping to reverse a serious disease.”
Dr. Nicholas DiNubile applauds Schwab’s efforts. “Roger is a true visionary,” says DiNubile, chief of orthopedics at Delaware County Memorial Hospital and a longtime MLH&F member. “We need a lot more of his philosophy around. He’s had a tremendous impact in this region.”
Every year, Schwab returns to his alma mater, Lower Merion High School, for career day, and his message is always the same. “You have to be passionate about what you’re doing,” he says. “I’m here because I love what I do. I’ll keep doing it for as long as I can.”
