Femur lengthening with Dr. Betz - 2021
« on: February 14, 2021, 08:18:19 PM »

Hello everyone  :)

    I would like to contribute to this forum by sharing my journey of limb lengthening.
   
    Starting height: 170 cm
    Desired increase: 10 cm
    Desired final height: 180 cm
    Wingspan: 174 cm
    Tibia to femur percentage: 86%
    Gender: Male
    Age: 29 years
    Weight: 75 kg
   


    I had an initial consultation with Dr. Betz around start of Feb 2021 (Consultation cost is 500‎€). We had a 4 to 5 hour thorough conversation about the procedure and regarding all of its technicalities. Dr. Betz was very patient and explained all of the questions very diligently. Overall I had a positive impression of Dr. Betz. At the end of the conversation, I decided that I would go for femur lengthening since my tibia to femur ratio (0.86) is more than the average. Also, Dr Betz said that he would most likely use 11mm Betzbone nail for me. I am planning to have the surgery in May 2021. Since I have roughly around 2 months, I have started with daily 30 minutes of stretching.

    I will update this diary whenever I have made some progress. Also do share your thoughts/ideas if any, if you would like to share with me  :)

    Thank you.

Did you already pay for the procedure and the nails?

There are currently several lawsuits from former patients against Dr. Betz going on. If you or somebody you know is a former patient of Dr. Betz who would like to initiate legal action against him please send me a personal message.
I can help with lots of information on how to go about this.

Re: hanshi

No not yet. I am awaiting for the further instructions from Dr. Betz.
Are you also a patient of Dr. Betz?

All the best mate, I am considering Dr Betz in April. I might potentially see you there in Germany if our dates overlap.

@ ghkid2021: The surgery costs around €53,000 for femur lengthening (for taking out rods after 1 or 2 years you would have to pay extra € 6,700).

@ Limbfan2020:  We did had a talk regarding Stryde, but Dr. Betz showed great confidence in Betzbone. Also he said in recent years, he has greatly improved the quality of his nail, thus there are no bending issues anymore with Betzbone. Also, Stryde with him would cost more (I do not know the exact amount). Hence, I decided to go ahead with Betzbone nail.

Thanks for the well wishes.

500 euro for consultation, 53000 for betzbone, and 6700 for nail removal is unnecessarily expensive, imo. Many problems with Betzbone failures as Betz apparently admitted  "...in recent years, he has greatly improved the quality of his nail, thus there are no bending issues anymore with Betzbone...".

Hi, best of luck!

Did you get to see the place where most people stay after the clinic (I guess it's called the residential center)? Is it good enough?
