Patient Case History: Sean

Lengthening and deformity correction of a femur malunion


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Sean was hit by a car a few years back. Fracture of his femur healed with valgus deformity and 6cm of shortening.


We performed an osteotomy (bone cut) of the femur and applied a monolateral frame to his leg to match the deformity. Gradual lengthening of 1mm daily led to a 6cm lengthening and correction of his deformity.


He was in his frame for 6 months. Excellent bone healing occurred. He is very happy with his deformity and length correction.
