LLILA - The Limb Lengthening Institute of Los Angeles

Dr. Shahab Mahboubian, DO, MPH and Dr. Alireza Khosroabadi, DPM located in Los Angeles, perform height lengthening, cosmetic limb lengthening and deformity correction surgeries by using techniques to replace missing bone and to lengthen or straighten deformed bones. Height lengthening has advanced and now has less complications and faster recovery time. Patients, including children may benefit due to birth defects, injuries, or diseases, including those who are bow-legged, have one leg shorter than the other (limb discrepancy), knock-knee deformities, or injuries and trauma. Through distraction osteogenes, lengthening the bones and correcting deformities works by gradually growing new bone and soft tissues.

Patients of short stature, otherwise known as Dwarfism or achondroplasia, may benefit from limb lengthening procedures. The procedures can lengthen both legs of patients in order to help patients grow taller. Achondroplastic dwarfs are especially permissive to limb lengthening because of their intrinsic anatomy. Limbs of these patients have been lengthened up to 12 inches in legs and 5 inches in the arms. There are a many limb lengthening techniques available. The devices used can be external, internal, or both. Children and adults are candidates for the treatment. Children with congenial deformities may often be experiencing different lengths of the legs. Adults who do not address this may suffer from hip arthritis and/or back pain. After a fracture, bones might shorten and may become deformed (malunion). In some cases bones may not heal (nonunion).

Limb lengthening procedures have successfully corrected extreme deformities. Some patients suffer from a segment of bone missing after a bone tumor, infection, or severe fracture. Our procedure can transport new bone to fill in these defects. Patients who suffer from deformities such as being bow-legged or have a knock-knee deformity are at risk for developing arthritis due to their improper anatomical alignment. LLILA (The Limb Lengthening Institute of Los Angeles) uses techniques safely to correct severe deformities and help you avoid the need for early joint replacement. We help kids and children with club foot as well.
