Less Harmful Surgery
Stature lengthening surgery is a procedure for people who want to be taller. In the Downey Institute, we wish to inform those interested in this treatment to make informed decisions about their treatment.
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, height lengthening can cause pain and chronic disability. At the Downey Institute, safety is our top priority. The main factor in increasing height is safety.
THE LENGTHENING NAIL
We always use the most advanced technology available, such as the NuVasive PRECICE intramedullary nail, a new device in limb lengthening techniques.
IS THE PRECICE ADEQUATE FOR ME?
If you need surgery, you may decide that the PRECICE nail is a good option for you. On the contrary, before surgery, you should request an initial consultation (free) to make an assessment and make sure you are as prepared as possible for this complex surgery.
INDICATIONS OF THE PRECICE NAIL:
1- Leg-length discrepancies can be present at birth or they can develop after a fracture or a traumatic injury. Children may suffer an injury that damages their growth plate and, as the child continues to grow, the discrepancy may increase slowly.
2- People dissatisfied with their current height, due to bone dysplasia or constitutional short stature.

Phases of the Method
Stature lengthening at the Downey Institute is divided into two main phases: distraction phase and consolidation phase.
1. Distraction phase:
After the surgery, the lengthening will start (the distraction phase).
During this period, you will have to apply the external remote control to elongate the nail and your bones.
2. Consolidation phase:
Once you reach the desired length, you will enter the consolidation phase. In this phase, no additional adjustments are made to the PRECICE and the new bone is allowed to grow in.
