Dr. Javier Downey
« on: November 12, 2019, 06:34:29 PM »

Hello,
I'm from Spain and next to the city I live I have found this doctor that uses  internal PRECICE 2. I haven´t found anything about him in this forum, does anyone know if he is good? He said the price is around 60.000. His website: https://instituto-downey.com/aumento-estatura/

Hello everyone,
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Javier Downey. I glad to see that someone has mentioned me in this forum and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I am an orthopedic surgeon living in Spain specialized in limb lengthening and deformity reconstruction since 2006. I have been trained at the Rubin's Institute for Advanced Orthopedics in Baltimore, Maryland with Drs. Herzenberg, Standard and Paley. On that first fellowship, I learned many reconstruction techniques like the SUPER surgeries for congenital deformities as well as the Ilizarov frame and the newer Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF). While I was there I learned about stature lengthening. of course, back then, it was done with external fixators.

I have kept going back to Baltimore and more recently, have been training with Dr.Paley at the Paley Institute at West Palm Beach. There I learned how to use, what I think is REALLY changing every concept we knew about limb lengthening, the PRECICE nail.

Now we finally have a proper device to perform stature lengthenings without having to use the cumbersome, and full of complications, external fixator.

I have performed several lengthenings with the PRECICE nail and all I can say is it really makes it all A LOT easier for everybody involved.

More recently, I implanted the first PRECICE STRYDE nail in Spain. I, again, am in awe with this device. I stood my patient up the VERY NEXT MORNING! Since then all she has been doing is getting better and better and, as of today does not use any external support to walk.

I am glad to respond to any comments and questions presented at this forum.

Welcome any NEGATIVE information of Donghoon
Any doctor with more than 5% complication rate is NOT acceptable

Do you know the old forum makemetller?

We really need more doctors with dedication and compassion, who loves his job and strives to achieve meticulous work
Unfortunately most CLL doctors aren’t good at all not meeting the standard the patients need

Does anyone has experience with this doctor? I was thinking about doing it with Giotikas, but Dr Downey works in my own city.

2. What are the accommodations/living arrangements nearby?

3. How will covid affect when you expect to be able to take Americans as patients again?

I am from Spain.
3 - At this time Spanish government put a quarantine of 15 days for tourists. Seville is a city with not too much covid-19 patients, most of them are in Madrid and Barcelona.
2 - Spain is cheap, but maybe the center of Seville is a bit expensive.

Note: at this moment I'm only a "pretender", I want to know more about this interesting procedure. Hopping to become 185 cm from 173 cm, but it is too expensive.
My sitting height is 92½ - 94 cm (36''½ 37'') and my armspan is 180 cm (70'' 7/8).

Thanks Dr. Downey. What's your policy with COVID? In terms of documents people need to bring and what to do if he gets covid before the treatment?

Did you make a decision? Who is cheaper after considering all expenses for an American?
