New Update About Dr.Ju Hwan Chung
« on: January 10, 2017, 05:06:56 AM »

Good Morning/Evening my fellow LLer.

   Just now i have contacted Yonsei Kim and chung orthopedic clinic,which located in seoul ,korea.
I have booked for tibia and femur surgery with Dr,Ju hwan chung(dr who perfrom LL) using LON.

The price is incredible cheap, 54 million Korean won (Around 47k usd). 10day of hospital stay is included after surgery.For your information 47k usd is for two surgery!
I do not stay in hospital,i have house there.

if you would like to stay at hospital it cost 2 million won(around 1700usd)per month.

I think he got it the other way around by mistake, it must be 5.2 on tibiae and 6.8 on femur lol.

Well if it's femur lengthening with LON, then it makes sense to do fewer CM. The muscles around the femur are very strong and the monorail can only tolerate the muscle resistance up to a point. Beyond that the chance of misalignment problems increases a great deal because it can't handle all that tension. This is in addition to the scarring that causes reduction of knee ROM. My doc said he wouldn't do more than 3 or 4 cm with femur LON for CLL because of these reasons.

For tibia is it better to do hybrid ext. fixator or LON? Are the benefits of LON over external fixator worth the increased chance of perm knee pain? Is the hybrid over pure external different significantly or only marginally?

dr.ju hwan chung said that he recommend me to lengthenening more tibia than femur because, femur is stronger than tibia,because of this lengthening more on tibia will make muscle more and stronger as body function to protect themself.
