Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment for Limb Length Discrepancy

What is the treatment for Limb Length Discrepancy?

Depending on the needs of the patient, our doctors may recommend one or more treatments. These treatment strategies include:

  • Wearing a shoe lift: It is placed in the shoe to lift the feet. It is mostly preferred by individuals who do not want to undergo surgery. 
  • Prosthetic fitting: For patients with large discrepancies in extremities, this is used as a resort after amputation. 
  • Surgical procedures: There are various surgical procedures used to treat limb length discrepancy like epiphysiodesis, which aims at altering or stopping the bone growth naturally. Another surgical procedure is limb lengthening. In this procedure, the bone is surgically separated and made into two segments, and so gradually new bones form in the gap resulting in increased length.
