About Limb Lengthening in Thailand

Limb lengthening is a surgical procedure that involves extending the bones in the limbs, typically the legs. This can be done to correct limb length discrepancies due to congenital conditions, injuries, or other diseases. It is also pursued by some individuals for cosmetic reasons to increase their height. Thailand offers high-quality medical facilities with experienced orthopedic surgeons who have specialized in limb lengthening procedures. Patients from around the world are drawn to Thailand for its affordable healthcare services without compromising on the quality of care.

Preparing for Limb Lengthening in Thailand

Prior to undergoing limb lengthening in Thailand, patients should undergo a thorough evaluation including a physical examination and imaging studies such as X-rays to assess the condition of the bones. It is crucial to discuss the goals of the procedure, potential risks, and expected outcomes with the surgeon. When choosing a medical facility or surgeon in Thailand, consider factors like the surgeon's experience in limb lengthening, language proficiency, and hospital accreditation.

Procedure Details & Recovery

The limb lengthening procedure involves surgically cutting the bones and gradually pulling them apart at a controlled rate to allow new bone to form in the gap. This is done using external or internal devices. The lengthening phase is followed by a consolidation phase where the new bone hardens. Post-surgery, patients typically need to stay in the hospital for a few days and then continue with physical therapy to regain strength and mobility. The entire process, including the consolidation phase, can take several months to a year.

Costs of Limb Lengthening in Thailand

The cost of limb lengthening in Thailand typically ranges from $30,000 to $40,000, depending on the technique used and the extent of lengthening required. This price includes any necessary overnight hospital stays required for the procedure.
