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.

Emergency operation and post-surgery checkup

"I live in New Zealand, and my partner and I went on a holiday in Laos (Asia). I became sick and needed an emergency stomach operation. I reached out to this company, and they have been nothing but helpful.

They helped us with translating in Laos; they organised a taxi driver who was waiting for us at arrival and drove us to the hospital, where they organised a scan for me. I only needed to show my passport and an email when I arrived. I was already in the system for the appointment.

Everything went really smoothly. The company is professional and reliable, and the staff is super friendly too. I would highly recommend this company. I am grateful for the great service this company offered when I was in need."

Cataract surgery & Gastroscopy + Colonoscopy

Konkai is an awesome team that’s 100% determined to helping the patient going an extra mile. This exactly has been my experience.

From the hotel booking to taking appointments with the top level doctors in the hospital that’s most favorable to patient. Which was with me and my wife.

My experience further with Konkai was even to the extent of coordinating financial matters when there was an urgency. My wife and I cannot express with my words enough for the awesome services discharged by Konkai.

Post surgery the follow up and support to patient is amazing beyond explanation. It’s more than 8 weeks after my surgery and their regular touch for feed backs and follow up constantly checking as to how things are going? This is not a normal thing in the medical field. Anyone can blindly trust Konkai and be a member of their family.

Thank you
