if your measurements were correct you only would have the femur option,
the femur should always be larger than the tibia, never the opposite, at most as in my case and yours may have a value close to it.
at most you could do 2 segments 5cm+5cm or 7cm+4cm being femur and tibia.
within a standard proportion you could make femur up to 40cm (8cm)
and stay in the ratio 40cm-30cm.
I think your case you could not do an internal surgery because I'm not sure if there are menore intramedullary rods that 30cm, would probably have to have 25cm of rod for your case.
so I think it would have to be external stretching in the femur.
