Limb Lengthening Surgery in Turkey
The limb lengthening in Turkey and Istanbul is a widespread procedure that is performed both for the treatment of dwarfism and the post-traumatic femoral shortening. In case of dwarfism, it is clear that limb lengthening is performed simultaneously at the level of both limbs, whether the upper or lower limbs. The limb lengthening is the perfect treatment of the discrepancy of the lower limbs due to trauma.
Different techniques are used for the surgical treatment of limb deformities which allow correcting axial deviations. In fact, bone regeneration can take place after a fracture, a bone section, or osteotomy followed by a gradual distracting traction, which allows the formation of new bone tissue ( osteogenesis ). In this way, the bone segments can be corrected and/or stretched gradually until any bone gaps are filled.
Therefore, it is possible to lengthen a leg 1.5 meter high, for example, into more than 20 centimeters.
