ELONGATION OF SHINBONES SURGERY (10 CMS BILATERAL)

This procedure involves deliberate breaking of shinbone. The bone then is gradually pulled apart at the ends of the broken bone over a long period of time leading to new bone formation as the body heals. The fracture is extended yet again so that the body creates more bone.

 

In addition to cosmetic reasons, this procedure is carried out mainly for the treatment of limb length discrepancies as well as other joint deformities and scar tissues that limit normal movement.
