Deformity Correction By Ilizarov Principles

Taking advantage of the remarkable fact that bone heals itself by growing, or regenerating, the ILIZAROV technique can correct disfigured bones by separating two bone halves millimeter by millimeter.

Use of the ILIZAROV Method

  • Trauma,
  • Growth plate fractures healing of bones in an incorrect position ,
  • incomplete healing of fractured bones,
  • Shortening and deformity due to bone loss,
  • Congenital limb length discrepancies and other birth defects and deformities,
