PATIENT Testimonials

Stature lengthening is a cosmetic procedure for individuals who wish to become taller. The majority of people who seek this surgery are unhappy with their body image. The purpose of the Stature Lengthening Center is to educate those interested in this type of surgery and to empower you to make informed and educated decisions about your treatment.


It’s hard to overestimate the impact that Dr. Robbins, Dr. Paley, and the amazing nurses and physical therapists there have had on my life. I’m fully aware that the benefits of the extra height are mostly in my mind, yet I also remain convinced there are some tangible benefits. Nevertheless, my mind is transformed. My confidence has soared. My path to becoming the man I want to be has materialized. Previously, my interest in school had waned, I had become a bit anti-social, my future was in doubt, and my baseline happiness was low. Within a year since returning from Florida, I’ve dramatically accelerated in academics, and I’ve written software that is now being taught at multiple universities. I have now been admitted to my dream school, Stanford University. To be clear, other improvements I’ve made to my life contributed to my success. However, none of this would’ve been possible without you. I can’t thank the team enough. Thank you also to Angelique and Lina for taking care of me and supporting me throughout this process. Your teamwork made this journey much easier.


Our experience with Dr. Paley and Robbins was great. Both MK and I underestimated the difficulty of limb lengthening, even after Dr. Paley initially told us, “This will be the hardest thing you ever do.” Everything happened as it was explained to us, there weren’t any surprises. The Stature Lengthening Concierge Team, Lina and Angelique were both amazing, absolutely professional and knowledgeable, before, during, and after. MK is very happy with everything. It got very difficult for MK mentally/emotionally at the end. But there’s no question he would do it all over again. In fact, he is doing it all over again to get an additional couple of inches :). MK said he’d get it for his children when he becomes a father if they aren’t tall naturally.

Physical therapy during the lengthening process is essential, this was a vital part of the whole process besides the surgery itself. I don’t know how MK would’ve fared without it. He undoubtedly would’ve had to stop earlier and that would’ve crushed him. MK was under 5′ 6″ before the surgery. That tormented him. It shouldn’t have bothered him so much, but it did. He couldn’t shake his depression and frustration despite plenty of psychological therapy. Now he is motivated, happy, and excited for his future. I wish height didn’t play such a pivotal role in his happiness, but it does… And this limb-lengthening solved it for him. If someone wants services provided by Paley Institute I would wholeheartedly recommend over any other options.

Dear Dr Paley and team,
I would like to show my gratitude to you and your team for helping me to accomplish my dream of growing taller. It has been one of the most significant and successful thing I have ever done in my life.

As a university year 1 student in hospitality school, I was lucky enough to be an intern in Ritz Carlton. I believe that the reason I got accepted is not only my expertise in this industry but also the height which I have gained over the past 2 year. You and your team gave a chance for others like me to get an extra inch. This allows us to find new opportunities and make us feel more confident.

This month I came back to take my rod out,to celebrate my end of a long and successful journey. This is certainly not an easy journey, but you and your professional have made this journey worthwhile for me. Once again, I want to say a big thank you to you and your team for allowing me to have a chance to grow taller and feel more proud of myself. I hope that your business will keep blooming and extend to more patients who want to grow an extra inch.


I’ve been a Dr. Paley patient for almost a year now. Great service from the beginning to the end! The entire team has been very helpful through my entire lengthening process. The best thing about the procedure is that you get to see the Doctor every 2 weeks. Better safe than sorry! Best method to prevent any complications. I can’t believe how smooth the whole process was! I highly recommend the Institute!


My experience with the staff and surgeons at Paley Institute has been excellent. From my initial inquiry about lengthening to the actual procedure and physical therapy I was always made to feel that my well being was a top priority. I am extremely happy with the results and the recovery time was as promised. I wish to give a special thanks to Dr.Paley and Dr Robbins for changing my life and to the support staff and physical therapists that contributed to the success of my surgery. I can’t thank you all enough!


I would like to express my gratitude towards the Paley Institute and the entire team of doctors, physical therapists, and client coordinators who took great care of me during this complicated surgery. In particular, I would like to thank Dr. Paley, Dr. Robbins, the best physical therapists, Jason and Michael, and client coordinators-Angelique and Sylwia. These people put their heart and soul into my speedy recovery. With their help, I was able to lengthen a full 8 cm which is the maximum that STRYDE nail allows one to lengthen. This surgery changed my life for the better. Before proceeding with the surgery at the Paley’s Institute, I went to two more doctors in the US for consultation. There is no doubt that Dr. Paley’s team is the best. I absolutely recommend Dr. Paley to future patients.


Thank you so much to the Paley Team for providing me such exceptional service! They made me feel informed and confident about the procedure. The Institute has earned my trust from the lengthening experience of Dr. Paley and his surgery safety record. The Paley Institute is one of the most well-structured facilities after I visited 2 other places to increase my height.


St. Mary’s hospital is the best hospital I’ve been to. The nurses were extremely nice and always ready to help. In the Paley Institute, the professional care and treatment I’ve got were truly worth the money and definitely is the safest place to get the lengthening surgery done. The whole process couldn’t have gone any better


Great surgeons, excellent surgery and physical therapy. What you all do it is truly amazing and magic! Thanks, Dr. Paley, Dr. Robbins, Angelique, and Mike! Excited to start my new life as a taller person!


Cosmetic leg lengthening can be helpful for those not happy with the height. It is definitely improving social capabilities and self – confidence. All patients I’ve met here reported satisfaction and gratification with changes in their personal & professional life.


Very responsive and supportive staff. Answered all my questions and allowed me to speak first – hand with patients to hear their experience. Overall, a very positive experience. After I return home I will need to resume my normal life. But I can already tell the surgery has made a positive impact on my life.
