General information on operations for legs shape correction.
On an average, the legs correction lasts 50-60 days; however, it may require less or more time depending on various factors such as the individual ability of the body to regenerate, age and/or the patient’s level of activity. Those patients who walk actively and regularly since the very beginning of treatment recover noticeably faster than those who “prefer to relax”. Our absolute record is 42 days from the operation till the frames removal. In general, 55-60 days are sufficient for about 90% of our patients.
Legs correction operation is performed either under spinal or general anesthesia.
Our patients start walking independently with crutches the next day after the operation. The patients are active, they can serve themselves, for this reason there is no need to have their relatives or accompanying persons at hand. Albeit, we don’t restrict any contact, and relatives and guests can spend their time with patients all day long.
Our patients’ should not be less than 16 and no older than 60 years of age. During the treatment, patients should either stay in the hospital, or rent an apartment or stay at a hotel under constant supervision of our doctors and closely follow all their instructions. It’s only in this case that we can guarantee success.
By the end of treatment, the patients are able to walk without crutches.
The patients are able to resume their daily routine and way of life 2-3 weeks after leaving the hospital.
Rehabilitation period after surgery for legs shape correction.
During rehabilitation, swimming and graduated walking are recommended. A physical load may be increased 2-3 month following the surgery. The operation for legs shape correction leaves only small scars which get practically invisible with time.
During treatment we use a special computer system for surgery planning and determining individual parameters of dynamic characteristics of the frames.
