How Is Limb Lengthening Surgery Performed?
First, your surgeon cuts your bone in the middle and creates 2 separate parts.
It places the nails that will hold the bones divided into 2 separate parts together and completes other details such as soft tissue release and lengthening as needed.
Since the Precice 2 method will be used, the device can not be felt and is not visible from the outside as it is placed inside the bone shaft.
After your surgery is completed, the process is divided into three stages. In the first stage, your bones and soft tissue cells are allowed to heal, this process takes approximately 1 week. In the second stage, your bones will start to elongate . This process continues until the desired length is reached, depending on patient expectations and medical limitations. This can take from 2 to 3 months. During the third stage, the healing bone consolidates and start share weight with the nail. This process, which is required for your bones to fully strengthen, can take up to 4-6 months.
What Should Patients Pay Attention To?
During the recovery period, patients should avoid consuming products containing nicotine. Also, following a diet rich in protein and vitamins helps in the healing process. We monitor our patients' individual dietary needs and recommend changes as necessary with our dedicated dietician.
It is very important that patients receive physical therapy 7 days a week during the process of bone elongation. In addition we provide regular doctor and physical therapy care as a part of the treatment process.
