Limb Lengthening Service of the Hospital for Special Surgery

TaylorFrame Our surgeons offer surgical treatments for the correction of upper and lower limb deformities, discrepancies, and injuries in adults and children. We help individuals with orthopaedic issues due to trauma, birth defects, infections or bone tumors. Our aim is to use the best tools available today — from hexapod external fixation to internal limb lengthening devices, such as the Precice® motorized magnetic nail and the newest technology, the STRYDE® weight bearing lengthening nail. These tools are combined with our surgeons' expert surgical techniques to achieve results many patients have only dreamed of.


We perform arm and leg lengthening, limb malalignment correction, repair bone nonunions, and treat knee and ankle arthritis with distraction, fusion, or replacement. Along with limb length discrepancy, we correct genu valgum, commonly known as knock knee, and genu varum, or bowleg. We are experts at limb salvage and amputation reconstruction. Whether patients are suffering from arthritis, genetic deformity, bone tumor, or the after effects of a traumatic accident, the Limb Lengthening & Complex Reconstruction Service of Hospital for Special Surgery is ready to get them on the road to recovery and an improved quality of life.

Jude from 🇯🇴 Jordan has Olliers disease and underwent tibia #limblengthening #limblengtheningsurgery for #leglengthdiscrepancy using #orthospin robotic struts which are fully automated. Once lengthening is done the motors are removed- they look like a squid 🦑 and this makes frame more sleek and light. #hsskids #pediatricorthopedics #Rozbruch #aaos #llrs #orthopedicsurgery #orthopedicsurgeon #hospitalforspecialsurgery #limblengthening @hspecialsurgery @limbdeformity @limbtumordoc #SRobertRozbruchMD www.limblengthening.com  www.hss.edu/limblengthening www.hss.edu/LSARCImage attachmentImage attachment
