Height lengthening, or growing taller, is a relatively new concept; however, it has been performed successfully for over 50 years. The procedure involves a surgical cut in the leg and/or thigh bones through a minimally invasive technique in order to allow lengthening or correction of any deformities in the legs. A Russian surgeon named Gavriil Ilizarov developed this concept in the 1950’s, and the technique has since been dramatically improved by surgeons from around the world to allow less complications and a faster recovery time.
