Limb lengthening surgery is an inpatient procedure to lengthen the bones in the arms or legs. This is a gradual process that takes advantage of the body's ability to generate new bones.
The whole process may take several months to make sure that the bones slowly increase in length. Likewise, the soft tissues, blood vessels, nerves, and ligaments surrounding the bone should stretch slowly over time and support the lengthened bone.
Limb Lengthening and Deformity Repair is a very sophisticated orthopaedics sub-specialty that Dr. William Terrell offers at Pinnacle. He is one of the few limb lengthening and deformity correction specialists in the United States.
