  • Hello Dr

    I have genus valgum on the tibia. I.am currently just under 5ft8 I believe. I am wondering with the LON surgery would you be able to correct my genu valgum and help me reach 5ft10 in height through the Tibia?

    • Dear Thomas,

      Thanks for your comment. Generally, patients with genu valgum can have limb lengthening surgery with the LON method. Knock knee can be corrected with the same surgery in lots of cases. However, the surgical procedure may change according to the patient’s x-rays and examinations. Therefore, we need to have your x-rays to give you more accurate information in this regard. You can send us your recent x-rays via WhatsApp +90 531 988 3090 or e-mail [email protected]

      Regards

  • I found you online after doing some research and would like to ask a few questions about the PRECICE Limb lengthening. I want to ask about the price, and recovery time. I am 5’5 and want to be at least 5’8 or 5’9. I do not want to push the limit. Also do you use PRECICE 2 with the internal nails and remote?

    • Thanks for your comment.

      With a single limb lengthening surgery you can gain up to 8 cm on the femur, 7 cm on the tibia. So after the first surgery, you can reach your goal height.

      1. Precice 2: 37,250 Euro

      • 1 week of hospitalization
      • 60-80 days of lengthening
      • 5-6 months of bone healing

      Total: 8-9 months

      • Precice 2 titanium nails cannot bear the weight of patient hence they are wheelchair-bound for the entire lengthening phase- can start to walk after bone healing is significant

      2. Precice Stryde: 52,250 Euro

      • 1 week of hospitalization
      • 60-80 days of lengthening
      • 5-6 months of bone healing

      Total: 8-9 months

      • Patients can start to walk 4-8 weeks after the surgery during the lengthening phase as well – healing and recovery generally fast and the patient can return to daily life quicker.

      With fully internal methods, you’ll have a remote to lengthen your legs.

  • What is the additional height I can gain? What does fee include, do I have to rent a apartment when I got there?

    • Thanks for your comment. It is possible to gain max. 7-8 cm on femurs, or max. 6-7 cm on tibia. In inches, you can gain approx. 3 inches maximum in one procedure. If you undergo two surgeries, then a combined 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) height gain is possible. We have many services included in the surgery price, such as caretaker, hospitalization etc. Also, if you plan to stay in Turkey for the post-surgery recovery period, we have service packages that include essential things you need.
