As a rule, limb discrepancy over 2 cm influences a person's life style in a negative way. This is an indication for surgical correction.
The correction of the discrepancy is accomplished using the internal method, the same method as is used for cosmetic limb lengthening for patients of short stature.

Pictures of the patients before and after the correction program are shown below

 
Pay attention to the surgical incisions. They are in the healing process (30 days after the surgery).
And they will be practically invisible after healing

 
Discrepancy correction is for 4.0 cm (1,6 inches)
 

 

 

Patient A had an 11.7 cm (4,6 inches) discrepancy due to a bullet wound sustained to his femur in 1984 (Afghanistan).  The surgery for this particular patient was complicated due to extensive scar tissue, which had resulted from a fire wound and several prior surgeries in military hospitals.

The result: Patient A received an 11.4 cm (4,49 inches) lengthening of his right femur.

   
Before correction program. The discrepancy 6 cm (2,36 inches).
