Thanks to stretching the legs, the height increases by 7-16 centimeters which allows you to get rid of existing complexes caused by low height
After the fracture, the bone is adjusted and fixed in the desired position with help of the device. After some time, bone fragments grow together and the leg acquires former functional state
The device changes the bone structure and eliminates the curvature. As a result of straightening, the legs become perfectly straight and the growth increases by 4-7 cm, depending on the degree of curvature of the legs
During surgical treatment, a shorter limb segment is extended. The existing difference is eliminated and the length of the legs is balanced
Limb length discrepancy correction is carried out, due to which correct body proportions are restored
The method of surgical treatment is being chosen depending on the defect: the bone tissue is partially removed, the bone is straightened, the split areas are connected. As a result of manipulations, it is possible to straighten the limbs and eliminate deformities

Before performing any surgical procedure, the doctors of Ladisten Clinic Medical Center measure the patient’s body proportions and determine the optimal elongation rate for him. The value of the maximum increase in length is determined by the extensibility of the soft tissues in case of a particular patient. In most cases, for a cosmetic increase in a person’s height, a stretch of 6-7 cm is sufficient. Before surgery, it is necessary to undergo a series of tests to determine the patient’s health state accurately and eliminate possible contraindications.
The huge advantage of the device designed by Veklich V.V. is that It can be easily removed. As a result, the patient should undergo just one operation, during the installation of the device and then a little manipulation – the removal of devices. After removal of the construction, no large scars are left. Small spots with 2 mm in size disappear within a few months. Rehabilitation lasts about two months on average in clinic. The devices are removed after 7 months. It consists in constant slight physical load (exercises) on the legs. If possible, swimming lessons are prescribed. The patient can live his or her usual life, just as before. After the end of the rehabilitation period, physical activity may be fully restored without any restrictions.
