Guichet is a living legend indeed and Guichet nail was one of the first.
But look at the picture on his website: http://www.leg-limb-stature-lengthening-taller-height-increase-cosmetic.eu/us/technology%20comparison%20with%20other%20internal%20lengthening%20nails.php
Baumgart was co-inventor. But he wanted to develop something better and therefore went to a German precision manufacturer to come develop the Fitbone, which by now has been around for like 10 years and has a very low failure rate:


About Monegal: he is less experienced than Guichet as he is in his early 40s. But I know he does more than 365 operations per year and has teams regularly come over to learn from him.
Do you really need 10,000 operations to be become the best?

In summary, I would say Dr. Guichet is like an iPhone 1, Dr. Monegal is like an iPhone 7 and additionally less expensive, which made the choice very easy for me.

I will. :) In fact after Dr says I can walk(and he's already careful so he'll give me a later date), I'll wait a few weeks. I can't wait to walk and be fully independant but I'm taking zero chances.

Does Monegal recommends you to walk with a walker too or you are just in wheelchair??? Which would be the protocol if the patient is overweighted?

So no PT included? How much is overall estimated cost? I was communicated about 140k$ when i exchanged e mails with him.
PT doesn't necessarily have to be a separate cost. Most of his patients perform the exercises at home on their own to maintain range of motion, flexibility, etc.
Hospital costs (depending on your coverage) will be taken care of by insurance.

Can someone clarify something for me. Is Dr Parihar experienced in internal surgeries, I know that Penguinn is his first Precise 2 surgery but did he use the Precise 1 before?
