Preparing for Surgery

Preparing for your surgery will aid in your successful treatment, whether it is to treat a limb length discrepancy, bow legs, knock knees or any of the other conditions we treat. We want you to understand the details of your procedure and the usual in-hospital and post-operative routine in order to empower you to participate in your care and know what to expect during the recovery.
