Hello. I wanted to ask a question on behalf of my 5-year-old niece. She has achondroplasia and we want her to have limb lengthening surgery. Some of the surgeons we’ve seen didn’t recommend surgery, and we are very hesitant. Should she have it now or at an older age? Another question I have is, will the growth nuclei be damaged after the surgery? She is 92 cm tall currently. Thank you.
I usually start the first stretch at this age. I'm doing other extensions in later years. However, since these operations are very complicated, it is necessary to discuss each other. Good day Dr. Cengiz Sen examination appointment: Hulya hanim: 0544 2456365
