Welcome to Yerevan Center of Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction.
If you are unhappy with the shape or proportion of your legs, if your height causes you psychological discomfort, or if some other related condition makes you feel incomplete as a person, perhaps the limb lengthening surgery services may provide a solution. The decision to alter your legs for esthetic reasons (correction of legs or limb lengthening) is a serious one. Surgical techniques, duration of the procedure and rehabilitation, and medical and accommodation costs, as well as the setting of realistic goals, must be taken into consideration. We urge you to become well informed about the possibilities and details of esthetic surgery of legs as you make your decision.
In the 20th century, Gavril Ilizarov invented a method of distraction osteogenesis and proved scientifically that tissues can grow under tension.
Today Gavril Ilizarov’s limb lengthening method is known worldwide, and is used to solve many orthopedic problems. Growing taller is similar to the Ilizarov reconstructive method, but there are certain technical and psychological differences (see our approach). These are discussed on this site.
Various medical centers in several countries perform stature lengthening. They offer different techniques and services, from the classical Ilizarov method to the use of high-tech intramedullary telescopic rods that can grow automatically.
