  • Limb lengthening surgery methods have been improved drastically in the last several years. Scary, cumbersome and unreliable Ilizarov devices, the photos of which are being used to scare people, have been replaced with compact external devices or internal motorized nails. Internal devices are even not visible from outside and much more comfortable, and less risky.

    • Dear Josefine Munch,

      First of all, we would like to thank you for your kind comment and interest in limb lengthening and correctional surgery. Now, limb lengthening surgery was primarily developed as a surgical method to provide treatment options to patients suffering from dwarfism of limited stature; and medical progress and innovation have come a long way from the Ilizarov method which was mastered for limb correction almost 70 years ago.

      Now, however, innovations like Precice and Stryde nails; represent the latest in research in Limb lengthening treatments; whereby internal devices and nails are all that required; with less recovery time and providing much more in patients comfort, at the same time eliminating the risk which existed with external devices such as post-surgery infections.

  • Which one is combined system and what is the max lengthening that can be done without causing a disproportioned body and how is it possible that prices like 60KTRY are available for precice stryde in some hospitals?

    • Hello Mr. David Dogan Ruben,

      I hope you having a good day. Now, I will try to answer your questions below:

      1. The Combine method is LON Method; which involves both an intramedullary nail and an external fixator device for distraction.

      2. The recommended safe zone for lengthening for the Femur is 6 to 8 cms and for the Tibia is 5 to 7 cms.

      3. Lastly, the price of Precice Stryde as quoted by your question is impossible; irrespective of Turkey or anywhere in the world. I am guessing you may be referring to LON Method which is possible in this price zone.

  • Fine way of explaining, and fastidious article to get data concerning my presentation subject, which i am going to present in university.
