do you chose the section of the limb that is lengthened
« on: January 14, 2021, 04:20:37 AM »

I want to get tibia lengthening but don’t want to get elongated calf muscles as a result. Instead I want my tibias lengthened more in the lower half to give the appearance more of an elongated ankle section. Is it possible to chose the specific section of the limb that is actually lengthened?

I'll do femurs because internals with tibia has a high chance of permanent knee pain and wearing externals for a long period of time sucks. Also, Dr. Rozbruch in his interview said femurs are always better than tibia.

Tibia cut is always on the upper side.
That said, this has nothing to do with what will be more elongated (calf muscle or not).
Some people have huge calves after LL, some have smaller than before, this is genetic.

Also, no matter what Rozbruch says, external tibias with a hexapod will always be the safer way to do LL.
But this is offtopic.
