MedNjoy Limb Lenghtening Surgery

ADDAMS EXTEND LIMB SOLUTION™

Limb lengthening surgery is a procedure that aims to lengthen the arms or legs using the distraction osteogenesis method. This method benefits people with limb length discrepancies caused by various factors such as injury, fracture, congenital conditions or crush injuries.

Is limb lengthening a good idea?

Limb-lengthening surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have a limb-length discrepancy of at least two inches (5 centimeters) or more. This can be caused by many factors, including congenital conditions, such as achondroplasia or dwarfism, or acquired conditions, such as bone fractures or infections.

Does limb lengthening change genetics?

There are a lot of medical benefits that come with limb lengthening. It's going to help you orthopedically and overall, that helps your overall well-being and your overall health, but it doesn't change anything genetically and it doesn't change any potential risks that you can have from the gene later on in life.

How much taller can surgery make you?

As a general rule, our limb lengthening patients cannot add more than six inches to their height - and being six inches taller cannot be achieved in a single surgery. Our patients need to have one procedure to lengthen the femurs above the knee and a second procedure to lengthen the tibias.

Are legs weak after leg lengthening surgery?

Initially you will need to adjust to the new length of your muscles but it shouldn't take you long. Also the muscles will be initially weaker but with exercising you will regain the strength.
