Frequently Asked Questions About Limb Lengthening Surgery

How many limb lengthening methods are there?

There are five different limb lengthening surgery methods used by surgeons. Precice Stryde and Precice 2.2 are the most advanced limb lengthening methods worldwide-however the most expensive ones. The LON method is also an advanced method preferred by those who want a safe and affordable leg-lengthening experience. Less preferred methods are Ilizarov and Holyfix, which are external methods that require a long post-operative treatment period. Contact us to learn more about limb lengthening methods and to determine the most suitable method for you.

How many cm can I gain with leg lengthening surgery?

With a bilateral leg lengthening surgery, you can gain up to 6 cm in the tibia and up to 8 cm in the femur. If you want to grow about 12-15 cm in total, you can have the second surgery after completing the first lengthening procedure. Remember, the flexibility of your legs and muscles is the determining factor in achieving the desired height. For this reason, we provide excellent post-operative care to each of our patients, implement a comprehensive physical therapy program, and follow up on all our patients until they are fully recovered.

When will I regain my pre-surgery health condition?

After limb lengthening surgery, the healing process is divided into phases. Surgery and hospitalization take 5-7 days, the distraction (lengthening) phase takes 2-3 months, consolidation takes 1-3 months, and full recovery takes 9-12 months. Patients can start walking normally 4-5 months after the surgery and efficiently perform many physical activities after 6 months. Following the doctor's instructions and having physical therapy after the surgery is crucial to regain the pre-surgery health condition in the expected time range.
