Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction
Limb lengthening is a reconstructive procedure where the deformed bone is straightened or missing bone is replaced. It is performed in children and adults who have variations in their leg length because of diseases, injuries or birth defects. Limb lengthening procedure can be performed by minimally invasive techniques and may require a hospitalization of 1-2 nights.
Limb deformities can be congenital (present at birth) or develop at a later stage because of fracture, infection, arthritis or tumor.
