At the preparatory stage, doctors model the future shape of the legs and determine by calculation how many centimeters are needed to be added in order to achieve anatomical proportions. The nuances are discussed and additional examinations are carried out.
Before surgery, the patient stays in the clinic for 2-3 days. The surgery lasts 1-2 hours, depending on the situation. During surgery, a bone is cut and Veklich device is installed.
The first 10 days after the surgical procedure are critical. During this period, the foundation is being laid. The device is adjusted and legs are being lengthened millimeter by millimeter. New tissues form at the points of incision and a new bone is formed.
Late rehabilitation. The patient returns to his or her usual way of life. He or she still wears a device that supports the musculoskeletal function taking all the load on itself and allowing the tissues to grow together normally and to ossify. 6-7 months after the operation, the device is removed.
The diagnosis of limb length discrepancy disappears and a person remains healthy even years after the surgery.

With all my heart I want to thank Vitaliy Viktorovich and Victoria Vitaliivna. I was very worried and afraid of the operation, I have read a lot about it, and it turned out that everything is in fact exactly as it is written. The operation was quick, there were no scars after the operation and after wearing the devices on my legs. And now I am happy and confident in my future with new and straight legs.
