Shawn C. Standard, MD, FAAOS Head of Pediatric Orthopedics /International Center for Limb Lengthening; Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics; Sinai Hospital

Limb lengthening has been available to patients with dwarfism for several decades now. Just like how pharmaceutical treatments are being developed for achondroplasia, limb lengthening treatment is constantly advancing as well – having a less invasive approach due to new techniques that are being developed daily. In his presentation, Dr. Standard will highlight what patients can expect now and in the future when going through limb lengthening treatment.
