Thinking of doing 5 cm on femurs and 5 cm on tibias. So total of about 4 inch gain, and since it’s not too much on either, should be ok maybe? Also, I would definitely space them out about a year apart. Thoughts? Standing at about 5’9 currently, this would make me 6’1.

I had the pleasure to Meet Dr. Mangal Parihar last year when I was codirecting the first Pune Deformity Course. His cases are very complex and impressive and he is technically very thorough.

Dr. Milind Chaudhary has also one of the most pristine reputation and he is technically excellent. We get to meet yearly at the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course and ASAMI meetings.

We were cofaculty in a webinar attended by 4300 worldwide surgeons today and he presented 2 very impressive cases.

hope this helps!
Hello, Michael. By any chance, would you know if Dr. Milind Chaudhary takes CLL patients? I tried looking him up, but unfortunately couldn’t find a website.

Could you please stop writing bull  on this forum? Youre commenting on every damn thread thinking you know everything better without ever having LL before.Why would you say that betzbone break all
the time when youve never even done LL before. Im a current betz patient having successfully done Femurs and now doing tibias.

Sorry, they may not break, but they malfunction alot though. Betz had a 30% complication rate in the old forum, user hanshi compiled a list of problems and every single Betz diary and 30% were gone wrong. I'm happy you were one of the successful ones, but there are tons of Betz gone Wrong stories. Hanshi can give you a lecture on why Betz is absolute horseshiet.

I was there, you weren’t.
There were many successful patient with Dr Sarin. There even was a guy who did 11cm on his tibia and he stayed very long and worked very hard getting back to normal. Before he left he threw a party and walked unaided pretty ok for having done 11cm in one go.

Lots of guys are still going there with a good outcome and don’t feel the need to write about it.

Buddy, you literally gave us the reason why no one should go to Dr. Sarin. It doesn’t matter if you and some other patients got good results with Sarin, the fact that this doctor would allow a patient to do 11cm(on tibias nonetheless) is crazy! No doctor in their right mind would ever let a patient do this amount. I’m glad that patient recovered, but at this point its a gamble. I would even go as far as saying that you have 80% that you won’t recover and 19% that you will recover in years of hard PT. That 1% is the margin for a miracle. You placed your bet on Sarin and won. I’m not sure if you’re blind by your success CLL journey and that’s why you are vouching for Sarin, but at the end of the day the bad reputation of your doctor precedes him. Don’t be the reason a fellow forum brother gets crippled. Each one with their own opinion.
Love, brother

I went to India and 5 years later made a comeback as a Pro Athlete.
It was a bit difficult and it still is some days, but I’m 40+ years old now training every day.
I’m the fastest one running 8km in our team and I’m the 2nd strongest. A naturally 189cm tall guy is stronger than me in squats only.

Maybe I was one of the lucky ones, but my room mate did quadrilateral lengthening with monorails on his femurs and even he is actually doing very well and training heavily in the gym. 4cm on femurs with monorails and 7cm on tibias doing LON.
We ended up equal tall.  ;D

The final decision is yours.

Sounds like a load of crap, as a indian my self I fully know how indian doctors/surgeons are, they are greedy for money, and what your telling me just seems impossible, you cannot run fast after doing the surgery...

This type of mentality is what gets people crippled. They cheap out, go to turkey or India, doctor fu.cks up, then end up crippled for years. You should consider taking out a loan if it won't screw up your financial situation. If you don't have a high enough income to qualify for a loan, then you are probably not in the demographic of people who should consider LL, a very expensive surgery where which doctor you go to can literally determine the rest of your life.

I would say giotikas if you want budget Stryde, which will help your recovery improve much faster and get you back into society.

Totally agree, I’ve read many diaries from indian surgeons and most of them are bad, Dr Giotikas sounds like a good surgeon and there’s many diaries on here, 60k and you can do 2 surgeries where as with Dr. Mahboubian 1 surgery it self is about 70k

Don't know if true but I heard building muscle on legs is bad for LL, they stiff up and it's much more painful and difficult.

Though being flexible will ensure a better recovery, and shorter recovery time, which naturally means less time suffering. And Muay Thai helps with that.


Giotikas of course. Don't use anything that isn't Stryde at this point. Betzbone break all the time, stryde won't break

Are you insinuating Dr. Sarin would be a good surgeon for him? Unlike ghkid, I wouldn’t disregard a particular country, but I would definitely never consider doing it with Sarin. Way too many horror stories about Sarin, for me personally
