The most common place to stay is at one of our extended stay hotels on 45th Street. This is a few miles west of the hospital and the Paley Institute, on the same street. The cost of stay at these hotels varies with season and availability. High season is winter and low season is summer.
YOUR STAY IN WEST PALM BEACH
You need to stay until the end of the distraction phase (lengthening). The distraction phase length for femur lengthening is one day for each millimeter of planned lengthening. E.g. 80mm = 80 days. We don’t start lengthening for 7 days. Therefore 80 days for 80mm plus 7 days = 87 days (12 weeks) for 80mm. Tibia lengthening is .mm per day compared to 1mm/day for femur lengthening. For tibia lengthening, the distraction phase for 50mm is 10 weeks plus one week before we start lengthening; total 11 weeks.
Please note that wheelchair transportation vans are provided for guests staying at the specified extended stay hotels listed above, offering transportation to and from the hotel and the hospital from Monday to Friday, between 8 am and 5 pm. It’s important to clarify that this service is facilitated by a third-party provider and cannot be guaranteed. However, we make every effort to accommodate guests to the best of our abilities.
