||About Leg Lengthening / Xia's Leg-lengthening Technique|
Xia’s leg lengthening technique was based on more than 30 years clinical research and experience on leg lengthening surgery. Dr. Xia has redefined the concepts of leg lengthening and reformed, redesigned many surgical procedures and devices, overcome many shortcomings of the traditional techniques. Xia’s techniques is very safe, reliable, with high quality standards. This technique has shorter treatment duration, offers larger lengthening range and has no complications for low limb lengthening. Xia’s technique has turned the leg lengthening surgery from “dangerous procedure” to a safe one and the lengthening extent is no longer limited. Xia’s technique has extended leg lengthening surgery from treating diseased limbs to cosmetic surgery for normal limbs.
are six factors in Xia’s leg lengthening concept, which are also
the golden standards for leg lengthening surgery.
It depends on the systems the doctors would like to use. In our institute, we normally use the dynamic lengthener in combination with external fixation system. The sites of operation can be at tibiae or femora. If the total lengthening is less than 10 cm, only tibiae are needed to be lengthened; if the lengthening is greater than 10 cm, then femora should be considered.

medical examinations are performed before 8:30am and the patients should
fast for the morning when blood is taken.
