Can Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction Surgery Be Performed Simultaneously?

On This Page (Contents)

Deformity surgery encompasses surgical procedures that correct structural abnormalities in various parts of the body. These surgeries are performed to correct congenital or acquired deformities. Particularly on the skeletal system, deformity surgeries aim to resolve issues such as curvature or misalignment of bones. These procedures are conducted with the goals of enhancing the individual's functional capacity, reducing pain, and improving aesthetic appearance.

Patients who have both short stature and deformity issues often ask if they can achieve results through a single surgery instead of two, wondering "Can limb lengthening and deformity correction surgery be performed simultaneously?" In this case, the priority for patients is their health, and it is very important that they are correctly informed.

Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction Surgery

Lengthening and deformity correction surgeries can technically be performed simultaneously. This method can be considered for patients with both length discrepancies and angular deformities. Performing both procedures together can reduce the total number of surgeries and recovery time for the patient. However, careful planning and experienced surgical expertise are required to ensure proper lengthening and alignment.

At this point, it is crucial for the doctor to consider the patient's health condition, type of deformity, and needs. Therefore, the first step is to comprehensively evaluate the patient's condition using detailed imaging techniques and advanced diagnostics. A treatment plan is prepared considering potential complications and the recovery process. Being meticulous and careful about the following aspects is also extremely important:

  1. Choosing a Specialist Surgeon: These complex and multifaceted surgical procedures should be performed by experienced surgeons who specialize in this area. It is important to learn about the surgeon's previous patients and surgery outcomes.

  2. Comprehensive Medical Assessment: Many factors such as the patient's overall health, bone health, potential risks, and post-surgery recovery capacity should be evaluated. This assessment should include blood tests, X-rays, MRI, and other imaging methods, as well as physical examinations.

  3. Understanding Surgery Risks: Every surgical procedure carries certain risks. It is necessary for the patient to be informed about possible complications such as infection, bleeding, and nerve damage, and for necessary measures to be taken to manage these risks.

  4. Recovery and Rehabilitation Process: The recovery process following such a surgery can be long and challenging. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are critically important for the success of the surgery. The patient needs to play an active role in their recovery process and adhere strictly to the specialists' recommendations.

  5. Psychological Preparation: Supporting the patient psychologically before and after the surgery, keeping their motivation and morale high, is important. Receiving professional psychological support during this process can be beneficial.

Each of these steps is crucial for the surgery to yield successful results and to best protect the patient's health. Therefore, it is critically important to consult and be examined by an experienced and specialized doctor in the field.
