The Limb Lengthening Center at Loma Linda University offers the latest and most advanced treatments for conditions affecting upper and lower limb length and deformity in children and adults. Lengthening and reconstructive surgery can be a journey.  In many cases gradual deformity corrections and lengthening surgery is performed over time with multiple procedures. We take our patients seriously and provide easy access to our physicians guiding you through each step of the process taking into account mental and physical challenges. 

Our goal is to help restore patients to their maximal potential using a comprehensive team approach.
