What is limb lengthening surgery?

Limb lengthening surgery, also known as height surgery, is a surgical procedure to make a person taller. Limb lengthening is accomplished by utilizing the body's natural ability to regenerate new bone, as well as the surrounding soft tissues, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. The procedure starts with an osteotomy, in which the orthopedic surgeon cuts the bone that needs to be lengthened. The limb is subsequently stabilized with various external and-or internal fixation devices or frames (generally the upper or lower leg).


The recovery process is divided into two phases. First, the bone that has been cut is gradually pulled apart in the first phase, or distraction phase, to promote distraction osteogenesis or new bone growth at the osteotomy site. Distracting or spreading the gap four times a day, 0.25 mm at a time, for a total of 1 mm per day, promotes the continued growth of new bone tissue. The body continues to produce new tissue in the gap between the ends of bones as it opens up until the desired length of bone has been generated.

The second phase of treatment is the recovery phase. At this phase, the lengthened bone consolidates and heals. The patient gradually puts more weight on his leg and starts walking without support. After full recovery, all physical activities and sports can be done.

How can I choose the most suitable limb lengthening method?

When choosing a limb lengthening method, you should consider the amount of lengthening you desire, the time range you can allocate for treatment, and your budget.
