LIMB-LENGTHENING

The BETZ INSTITUTE® offers all available (FDA approved) lengthening systems, including the PRECICE nail. It is worth noting that, currently, the BETZ INSTITUTE® is the only facility in the world that uses the BETZBONE® Nail. In comparison to other respected lengthening nails, the BETZBONE® Nail has a distinct advantage in that it allows the patient full weight-bearing and lengthening capacity advantages.

REACH NEW HEIGHTS

The BETZ INSTITUTE®, based in Diakonie Klinikum Neunkirchen in Saarland, Germany, specializes predominantly in cosmetic limb-lengthening. In this past decade alone, the Institute has successfully performed, on average, 150 limb-lengthening surgeries every year, utilizing an internal lengthening device which is placed into either the thigh bone or shin bone with minimal invasive precision. Gains achieved in length can be as much as 10cm/4 inches per bone segment.

BETZBONE® is an intramedullary nail that was developed by Dr. Betz in relation to the former Albizzia Nail. Modifications were based on Dr. Betz’s vast experience from limb-lengthening and often-complex orthopedic procedures that have led to an intramedullary nail that not only offers comfort, but far greater stability for the patient. The result is a full weight-bearing nail that does not require a patient to use a wheelchair. A patient can expect and is encouraged to walk with crutches during the complete lengthening period, vastly reducing the time taken to learn to walk with his or her new, longer legs.
