Height Lengthening Candidates & Deformity Surgery Candidate

Are You A Candidate?

Many people who struggle with physical birth defects or other problems can be candidates for height lengthening procedures. Both adults and children can benefit from our services provided they are healthy enough to begin.

There are a number of factors and certain limitations for whom the height lengthening procedure can be performed. Patients may not be accepted for the procedure if they have:

- Bone disease (i.e. Vitamin D deficiency)
