At the Paley Institute, safety is our number one priority. Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, stature lengthening can lead to chronic pain and disability. Therefore, the most important factor when considering stature lengthening should be safety. Safety comes from experience and organization. The Paley Institute provides the most experienced limb lengthening team in the world with the best safety track record.
While there are many other considerations, such as cost, time away from work-family-friends, method of lengthening (external vs internal), amount of height gain, etc., in the end the key consideration is SAFETY. It is not worth trading SAFETY for any of these factors. Safety comes from having the most experienced surgeon, the most experienced hospital, the most experienced support staff, the most experienced rehabilitation staff and the best most proven protocols. The Paley Institute is the most experienced in the US and in the world in all of these aspects. It is not worth taking a risk with your health. SAFETY is the number one reason patients choose the Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute Stature Center for Stature Lengthening.
