In the Words of our Patients

“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.” — M.A.

“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.” — C.M.

“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!” — P.T.

“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” — J.M.

“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.” — J.R.
