Japanese Patient’s Leg Lengthening Journey
A Patient from Japan Getting Limb Lengthening Surgery for the First Time #1
This writing is all about our patient who is at his late 20’s from Japan who had his first limb lengthening surgery on 8th of November. He has got a really interesting background about his family. He is half American and half Japan. He is a mixed-race male and was born in Japan where he had a chance to grow up in Japanese environment and experienced American culture as well by visiting the U.S.A time to time. You are going to witness our patient’s tibia leg lengthening journey from the scratch.
First thing first, he contacted our patient consultant to get detailed information related to the surgery. Before he got contact with us, he had been talking to the other agencies from South Korea, however, the prices did not suit his budget.
The next destination was the hotel and the doctor welcomed him at the hotel where we accommodate our patients. He had a nice conversation with Dr. Hüseyin Kavak, and had a chance to get some insights with the other patient whose surgery was performed by the doctor. Unfortunately, he is going to stay here for a short time of period. The doctor especially warned him to stay here at least a month and the patient consultant as well. It is highly advised that you should stay here during the lengthening period so that the doctor can observe your progress regularly and attentively. He managed to extend it, but he couldn’t do it because of some personal stuff. Yet, he promised to stay here for almost 2/3 months for his femur leg lengthening surgery.
It is the big day! Our patient arrived at the hospital with VIP transport accompanied his caretaker and his patient consultant as well. He was hospitalized and waited his doctor. Before the surgery, we did a quite impressive and informative interview with him. We really appreciate that! We hope it will inspire some people who desire to do this surgery.
Our patient is fully ready for his leg lengthening surgery. He is his late 20s and his height is 1,69 cm. He would like to achieve a maximum of 7 cm on his tibia with LON He prepared his legs for the surgery by doing some stretches and exercises with the instructions that are shown on the complete guide file
Our patient was asked for a short interview and did not return our request. We sincerely thank him for that. He shared some of his experience during the hospitalization.
Since he stays for a short time, he took physiotherapy sessions almost every day. He unbelievably shows huge commitment to improve his mobility. He is going through the process well because he did the stretches & excercises for two months before the surgery. His current condition seems pretty well. Mashallah 😊
It is time for our patient to go back his home. He was taken to the airport accompanied with one of our staff via VIP transportation. The Airline was called by our our patient couple of days ago and was informed about the assistance to get on the plane. We do not say goodbye, because he will return back here soon for his removal surgery. During this time, the patient consultant will be in touch with him constantly and the doctor will do follows-up remotely.
Please stay tuned, we will update this writing with photos, walking and exercise videos, x-rays and so on within following weeks.
