Lengthening of the tibia/femur by any method safe limit is 6-8cm,(3 inches ) 1mm/day of distraction without any complications. Each cm takes approximately 1month of recovery that means if you are lengthening 5 cm it will take about 2.5-3 months for lengthening and next 2-3 months to complete the bone formation. Recovery is completely subjective.

People ask frequently to do both fragment lengthening together but it’s always safe to go one by one, once one segment recovers fully then you should consider to lengthen the other. No one should do both segments (femur/tibia) together because all the procedures of Lengthening are complicated enough individually, we don’t recommend both segments together because it can cause major complications.

To achieve more than 8 cm, you will need Cross Lengthening method in which 2 surgeries will be done (one on Femur and second on Tibia/Diagonal Lengthening). In Cross Lengthening you can do a maximum of 12-15 cm.

Other option is Quadrilateral first Tibia Lengthening and 1-3 months gap and Femur Lengthening.

*The cost of Cross Lengthening / Quadrilateral Lengthening will be a combination of two surgeries or two methods. *

After the surgery, the person will have to stay in a guesthouse which is provided by us, till his/her Lengthening process gets completed.

Once lengthening is done, the patient will be allowed to go back to his/her home using wheelchair or elbow crutches depending on the patient 's condition. Patients can also extend their stay at our facility until he/she feels comfortable to go back to their home.

This procedure requires high supervision that is why we suggest the patient to stay under our observation for the entire Lengthening procedure.

The frames are heavy and almost every patient requires 24/7 help and supervision.
