Successful Ilizarov Surgery for Bone Extension in Turkey


If you need limb lengthening surgery, the orthopedic surgeons can gradually lengthen the affected bone by up to 15 - 20 cm, using the body's own capacity to create new bone and soft tissues. Have you considered traveling to Turkey for the Ilizarov procedure?


The external Ilizarov apparatus is used in orthopedic surgery either to treat complex, open bone fractures, or to lengthen, reshape limb bones. Extremity lengthening and reconstruction techniques can be applied to pediatric or adult patients (3-70 years). These patients usually suffer congenital disease, bone loss or traumatic limb length inequality. The surgeries are used for filling bone defects and correcting and lengthening bones with deformity. The process of correcting and lengthening the bones works when gradually growing new bone and soft tissues through distraction osteogenesis.

The Ilizarov method can be used in various modes, including:

  • Lengthening
  • Compression
  • Distraction
  • Differential compression or distraction
  • Bone transport   


How is Ilizarov surgery performed

Before the operation, the suitable device is fixed to patients’ bone with wires and screws. The operation is done through one or two incisions of a few centimeters. Treatment and rehabilitation following surgery is usually commenced at 1st. week after the operation. No adjustment is performed after the extremity reaches the required length and alignment. When it is decided that new bone has acquired enough strength, the device is taken out with local or general anesthesia. Ilizarov surgery can be performed for big bones extension.

  • Patients with discrepancy between 3 cm and 40 cm
