Surgeries Which We Performed

LON Limb Lengthening Surgery

Patients must keep the device attached to their legs once the bones are completely strengthened. However, a shorter duration of external fixation has led to the development of new techniques such as Lengthening Over Nail (LON, also known as ) the combined method. This brings out a huge advantage in terms of removing the external fixator earlier.

For instance, patients only spend around 2 or 3 months with external devices of LON on their legs compared to 9 or 12 months in completely external methods such as Ilizarov and Holyfix.

LON Method Limb Lengthening Surgery

Precice 2 Limb Lengthening Surgery

Precice 2 system offers a less-invasive procedure in Limb Lengthening surgery. It has been used since 2011, and has been one of the most preffered method by most patients so far in terms of amenity and biological safety.

Elongation is achieved using intramedullary techniques, with nails that are fully implantable in the patient. The two ends of the telescopic nais slowly pull apart creating a gap in the bone. In addition to this, there is no external metal device attached to the legs.

Limb Shortening Surgery

Differences between limbs can be seen as people grow. One arm may be slightly longer than the other. One leg may be several millimeters shorter than the other. However, at times, the lengths of bone pairs can differ significantly. In this case, it can cause difficulty in movement in the legs and eventually pain.

In such cases, people begin to consider bone shortening surgery. Although bone shortening surgery is not the first choice for the treatment of long bones, it is one of the options to help correct limb length discrepancies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions to our team about leg lengthening surgery, arm lengthening surgery, length reduction surgery, Combined method, Precice method.

  • How to grow taller?

    Lengthening is a surgical procedure that requires either internal or external rods placed inside the limbs which have to be adjusted periodically. Although limb lengthening is very effective it does require extensive recuperation and time. Approximately 1mm of height per day can be added which translates to an inch per month.

    On the other hand, you can learn how to increase your height using a combination of proven stretching exercises and nutrition and gain up to three to four inches of true, natural height in just a few months. You’ll save tens of thousands of dollars and be an overall healthier individual.

  • The most common exercises to become taller are stretching exercises. If you want to make good progress, you should stretch your legs, torso, and pretty much your whole body every day. However, there are more exercises than just stretching that are useful for our purposes such as swimming, sprinting, and biking. Make sure you have a healthy diet that provides your body with all kinds of nutrients. Your body will need it to stay healthy while going through the process. If you can get taller naturally, then limb lengthening surgery can be considered as a permanent option as well.

  • Height is determined by a variety of factors, including genetics, sex, certain medical conditions, nutrition, and exercise. It is a matter of record by everyone. The good news is that growing 2 to 6 inches is possible after the age of 18 if your growth plates are still active. With the great efforts you show, you can achieve your desired height gain. The bad news is that after puberty finishes, you won’t be able to grow much taller. In this case, doing things above will be like flogging a dead horse. Here comes the last question: How can I grow taller if it is not possible to do it naturally? The way to achieve the desired height is through having limb lengthening surgery. Apart from this, there is nothing that can give long-lasting results considering the closed growth plates. Before diving into having such surgery, make sure to do some research in order to comprehend the whole process.

  • You can gain up to 3 inches with a single bilateral limb lengthening surgery, ... Or be exact:
    Femurs (Thighs): 6 - 8 cms
    Tibias (Calfs) : 5 - 7 cms

    However, you may even opt to have two limb-lengthening surgeries, with a gap of 3/6 months between the two surgeries, and gain up to 6 inches or 12 - 15 cm.

    The doctors practice limb lengthening surgery with 4 methods, each varying in costs, post-surgery recovery time, and patient comfort.

    Please note that the height gains are similar with all methods, internal, external, and combination methods. The reason is that the height gain is dependant on the flexibility of the patient's leg muscles and nerves.

    Anything more than 8 cm on femurs and 7 cm on the Tibias, increases the risk of muscular or nerve damage.

  • Yes of course. We see enormous interest from various places of the world, especially from the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, Canada etc. Since high quality limb lengthening operations and post-op services are very expensive in most of these countries, Turkey appears to be a good choice by means of both reasonable price and high quality. Similarly, from countries such as Indonesia, India, Cambodia and Azerbaijan there are many people interested in leg lengthening surgery in Turkey.

    After undergoing LL surgery, our patients from abroad can return home after staying in hospital for 5-7 days and continue the procedure from their own country, or they can request for accommodation close to the hospital and get help from us. Those who stay far away can have check-ups and send the results and images via WhatsApp for doctor evaluation.
