Pretty cool seeing HSS on the ring!
3 months post-op from Joe’s Osseointegration procedure by Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction at HSS and feeling great! 😉🦿
I interrupt my peach filtered feed to bring you this unscheduled #dwarfismawareness post.

I don’t mind when my photos are shared. It’s why I’ve been so transparent about my experience for the past 10 years and why I consent to Dr. Standard and other organizations and publications to share my photo(s). That’s not the issue.

The issue is my photo(s) are being used here to spread misinformation about a #medical procedure that not only bettered my life, but also benefits those who are born with congenital conditions such as #CongenitalFemoralDeficiency, #ProximalFemoralFocalDeficiency #FibularHemimelia, etc.

I don’t want to post on their behalf, but I do want to mention that these patients face the same backlash and scrutiny as those with #dwarfism who opt for limb lengthening. When videos like this are made, it makes it even harder for parents and patients to find the necessary resources they need to correct and manage their child’s condition. You will never know what these patients and families go through when consulting with orthopedists - it’s hard and emotions are high. It’s why there are very FEW institutions in the US that perform these procedures —
・ International Center for Limb Lengthening, RIAO, Sinai Hospital / LifeBridge Health
・ Paley Institute / St. Mary's Medical Center
・ Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction at HSS / Hospital for Special Surgery (may as well list them here. NOTE: these are institutions that treat those with congenital conditions in addition to cosmetic lengthening. There are other institutions in the US who primarily perform cosmetic lengthening)

So when you see a video or post like this, keep in mind that it’s never about just height for these patients.

I also want to note that this isn’t a dig to Dr Karan. It’s simply a patient reacting to a limb lengthening video and providing her perspective.

I think this young man is ready for his next bilateral arm surgery!
You’d never know that he had his bilateral humerus external fixators just taken off 2 months ago
A good way to stay well is to eat well-lots of greens and protein- and work on a good nights sleep.

This is a long time coming. After so many dr’s said I would never walk again. Dr. Fragomen took on my case. I am now walking and I know if it was not for him I wouldn't be. A wonderful Dr., office and experience. Thank you.
What age is limb lengthening usually done at? My grandson has about a 1.25 to 1.5 inch difference. He will be 1 this month. He has RSS.

We offer solutions for your limb


At the Limb Lengthening Service of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, we offer surgical treatments for the correction of upper and lower limb deformities and injuries in adults and children. Dr. S. Robert Rozbruch and Dr. Austin T. Fragomen help individuals with orthopaedic issues due to trauma, birth defects, infections or tumors.

Our aim is to use the best tools available today — from Taylor Spatial FramesTM to internal lengthening devices, such as the Precice® Intramedullary System and the newest technology, the STRYDE nail. These tools are combined with our doctors' expert surgical techniques to achieve results many patients have only dreamed of.

We perform arm and leg lengthening and deformity correction, repair bone nonunions, and treat knee and ankle arthritis with distraction, fusion, or replacement. We correct genu valgum, commonly known as knock knee, and genu varum, or bow leg. Whether patients are suffering from arthritis, genetic deformity or the after effect of a traumatic accident, HSS's Limb Lengthening & Complex Reconstruction Service is ready to get them on the road to recovery and a new life.
