Deformity Correction Surgery:Deformity correction is the surgical adjustment or modification of bone that grows incorrectly as the result of a disease or condition, such as bowlegs or knock knee.
Limb Lengthening Surgery:Limb lengthening is a procedure to lengthen the bones in the arms or legs. This is done as a gradual process, so that the bones and soft tissues (skin, muscles, nerves, etc.) slowly increase in length. Typically, the process take several months. Limb lengthening can also be combined with gradual or acute deformity correction. At the International Center for Limb Lengthening, we routinely lengthen the humerus (upper arm bone), radius/ulna (forearm), femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone) and metatarsals (bones in the foot that affect toe length).

Acute or Chronic Bone Infection (Osteomyelitis) Surgery: Osteomyelitis is an inflammation or swelling of bone tissue that is usually the result of an infection. Bone infection may occur for many different reasons and can affect children or adults. Osteomyelitis can also occur from a nearby infection due to a traumatic injury, frequent medication injections, a surgical procedure or use of a prosthetic device. Acute Osteomyelitis is an infection that comes on suddenly. You may have a fever and then develop pain in the infected area days later. Chronic osteomyelitis is a bone infection that doesn’t go away with treatments. It causes bone pain and recurring drainage (pus). Rarely, chronic osteomyelitis doesn’t have symptoms. The infection may go undetected for months or even years. The goal for treatment of osteomyelitis is to cure the infection and minimize any long-term complications. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to drain infectious fluid, or to remove damaged tissue and bone.
