Limb Lengthening

Limb Lengthening is achieved using the body's own capacity to regenerate new bone as well as the soft tissues, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves that surround and support it.
The procedure begins with an operation called an osteotomy, in which the Orthopaedic Surgeon cuts the bone to be lengthened. The limb (usually the upper or lower leg) is then stabilized using one of several different external and internal fixation devices.
The right doctor to consult for Limb Lengthening is an Orthopaedic and a Joint Replacement Surgeon.
The success rate is high and varies between 89-95%.
Possible risks of Limb Lenghthening may, include infection, rapid or delayed bone healing, stiffness and swelling.
