Limb lengthening is a surgery that corrects leg length. People may have legs of different lengths owing to a medical condition or due an accident. Limb Lengthening is usually undertaken at the time of surgery done to correct deformities in the lower limbs. Even conditions in children like Hemihypertrophy, Neurofibromatosis (rare condition) and Overgrowth after a fracture can be corrected through this surgery.
Limb lengthening surgery in Turkey is a good option because of the excellent quality of orthopaedic surgeons, advanced surgery methods, comfortable postoperative stay, skilled physiotherapists and excellent service quality. Screening is done before the surgery to check Vitamin D levels, to rule out infection etc. Limb Lengthening is a two stage process. This surgical process supports the growth of new bone which leads the limb to lengthen. It begins with general anaesthesia, consolidation, strengthening and healing. A few days of hospital stay is required after Limb Lengthening in Turkey. After surgery, the new bone will begin to grow. This time period is called the latency period. Additionally you will be shown how to use the fixator to grow the bone. It is only after the required bone length is reached that you can stop the fixator usage. It should be kept in situ as the bones harden. The Limb Lengthening surgery or osteotomy can take about 2 hours and the actual lengthening process takes two to three months.
Limb Lengthening cost in Turkey is US$35,000 to US$45,000 which is very reasonable compared to $90,000 to $200,000 that Limb Lengthening costs in the United States of America.
Limb lengthening is a popular procedure used by several thousands of people worldwide, every year. People with contracted limbs or individuals with comparatively short stature often resort to limb lengthening treatment in order to gain a few inches added to the bone. Also known as distraction, limb lengthening can be a bit painful owing to the process by which it is performed. Limb lengthening treatment has been a blessing for innumerable people across the world, since it has blessed them with a healthy lifestyle, made them capable of achieving heights and increased their confidence manifolds.
Unlike other procedures, limb lengthening utilizes the capacity of the body itself to regenerate not only new bone, but also the nerves, tissues and muscles to provide complete support to the newly forming bone.
Limb lengthening surgery is often achieved with the use of internal limb lengthening device. The procedure is performed after providing general anaesthesia, which means the candidate will not feel any pain during the operation. The surgery is achieved by making two holes:
The first one is for insertion of the internal lengthening device
The second one is for cutting the bone, in order to make an additional space for bone regeneration in the gap.
The functioning of the device is checked and monitored before the punctures are sealed. The device can be monitored with the help or a remote which should be used three times per day for a prescribed period of time. The implant or the internal limb lengthening device is usually removed after a period of one or two years, as needed in case of the candidate.
The recovering time from the procedure is achieved after a period of six to nine months. The recovery period depends a lot on the growth rate of the candidate. Besides, it also depends on the follow-up care taken after the surgery, as well as on nutrition intake of the candidate.
