Lengthening surgeries are successfully performed in our hospital.
Short stature may occur due to various genetic reasons or because the development of the bone is delayed at any time after childbirth. People whose height is less than 150 cm are diagnosed with short structural stature (dwarfism). In patients with dwarfism, lengthening surgery can be performed to increase the limb's functional capacity or for cosmetic purposes.
It is possible to grow 10 – 15 cm at a time with length extension surgery. In sessions, each of which requires a separate operation, extension surgery can be performed on both the lower and upper parts of the legs.
