The Limb Lengthening Center at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive care to infants, children and young adults with complex orthopedic disorders of the lower limbs.
We focus on integrated care of patients with various orthopedic conditions of the lower extremities. The physicians in the clinic will recommend surgery only if it is in the best interest of your child. We will also inform you of all treatment options available and why we recommend one treatment over another.
Many of the procedures our physicians perform can make large differences in function, length and cosmetic appearance of our patients improving their quality of life.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
