While many patients have little issue with a socket prosthesis, a lot of patients struggle with fit, energy transfer, and have difficulty with their prosthesis. After osseointegration surgery, there is a direct connection between the prosthetic limb and the skeleton.

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.

Telemed visit with Chris 5 mos after #ankledistraction removal doing well. Improved from preop and I expect further gain over a full year. Xrays look a lot better with improved joint space, congruity, and subchondral bone density. Telemed works well for out of town patients. chris a former professional baseball player working hard to regain mobility after #ankledistractionarthroplasty #footandanklesurgeryImage attachmentImage attachment
