Lower Limb Shortening
In patients who are done growing, the longer limb may be shortened to even out the leg lengths. In this procedure, the doctor removes a section of bone from the middle of the longer limb and inserts metal plates and screws or a rod to hold the bone while it heals.
Major limb shortening may weaken the leg muscles, so it is not recommended for considerable lower limb length discrepancies.
- A maximum of 2 inches can be shortened in the tibia.
- In the femur, no more than 3 inches can be shortened.
