Must Know Things Before Coming to Turkey for Limb Lengthening

What Exactly is Limb Lengthening?

Modern orthopedic surgery known as "limb lengthening surgery Turkey" involves stretching out the bones in the legs to give you more height. The method works like natural magic by encouraging bone formation by using the body's own regeneration capabilities. The surgeon promotes the creation of new bone tissue by controlled fractures and incremental modifications, resulting in an astonishing increase in limb length.

With the use of high-tech gadgets, a 1mm gap is created on the femur or tibia of the legs each day to extend height. The lengthening completes every day by 1mm as the bone lengthens and fills in these created gaps. 1 cm is attained after 10 days, and so on. For instance, if your goal is 8 cm, the lengthening procedure will take a total of 80 days to complete, and full recovery will occur six months later.

What are the Limb Lengthening Methods? 

There are two high-tech methods that are provided by the FixTheHeight team and the working principle of the both methods is the same. However, there are some differences between them such as possible lengthening amount, scars, comfort, device quality and pricing. Let's take a deeper look at the characteristics of the methods:

LON Method

LON (Lengthening Over Nail) Method is a Lengthening method that is done by placing an internally and externally combined fixator inside the bone. This hybrid fixator is very easy to use since the lengthening is done by the patient thyself. Despite being cheaper, this method is rather more painful than other methods. Also, regular exercises and physical therapy is a must. Carrying a device on your legs may not be comfortable. However, it allows the patient to walk from day one.

PRECISE 2

Precice 2 Method is an internal fixation method that uses a titanium nail inserted inside the bone. Lengthening is done by a magnet device. During the lengthening phase, patients usually require a carrier and bound to a wheelchair since this method does not allow the patient to give load to their legs. Regular exercise and physical therapy is a must on this method. This method offers the minimum pain, scars and most comfortable lengthening process.

Quality of Healthcare Services in Turkey

Turkey has recently been one of the world's top nations for limb lengthening surgery Turkey due to its growing popularity and many privileges for foreign patients. Technology advancements, particularly in the previous five to ten years, have improved and made safer these surgeries. Turkey is one of the most popular locations for lengthening surgery for a variety of significant reasons. These variables start with the rise in the number of hospitals that meet international standards and offer professional, high-quality healthcare services, as well as the caliber of physicians.

Additionally, the most important factor in lengthening surgeries is that after the patient decides on this surgery, he/she can reach an experienced physician who has had high success in this field. Sometimes these physicians may not be in your own country, but in a country whose language you do not know or even have never seen.
