Dr Marchand was very caring. I told him I have to do post surgery care in NYC since my whole family lives there, he was still very caring and answered all my questions. Then his team made a CD of all my documents to provide to the doctors in NY.
I was grateful for the honest conversation with both the resident and doctor. They showed interest in my experience and concerns and were helpful and encouraging. They answered my questions thoroughly and I felt confident in their experience and care in my healing journey.

Limb lengthening is a reconstructive procedure where the deformed bone is straightened or the missing bone is replaced. It is performed in children and adults who have variations in their leg length because of a disease, injury, or birth defect.
