Why Choose Florida Hospital?
There are a number of conditions that can cause bones to be unequal or shorter than they need to be, and in these cases, limb lengthening is done to correct bones in the arms, legs and even the face. In most cases, the procedure used for this process is called distracting osteogenesis—and fortunately, the orthopedic specialists at the Florida Hospital Orthopedic Institute Fracture Care Center are specialists at this very procedure. They help patients understand what to expect from limb-lengthening surgery, and have the necessary expertise to perform the procedure successfully. If you or your child may need limb-lengthening surgery, contact us today.
