Leg Lengthening Surgery Turkey

Leg Lengthening Surgery Package in Istanbul, Turkey

 Leg lengthening surgery Turkey is a popular procedure to correct a limb length discrepancy. The procedure allows the short leg to "catch up" with the long leg and equalize limb length. When bone breaks, it naturally regenerates and the fracture gets fixed. Limb lengthening works by separating the bone and very slowly pulling apart the bone segments so that new bone continues to form in the gap. Since the bone segments are slowly distracted, the bone results in increased length.
