Dr. Robert Rozbruch - Limb Lengthening
I came across another US doctor that performed limb lengthening. In fact, he has a pretty good website that makes me feel good about seeing as well as a full detailed list of their staff.
According to the website, the hospital is located at the Weill Cornell Medical College in the Hospital for Special Surgery at the Institute for Limb Lengthening & Complex Reconstruction. So many names I know but that is what the website shows.
On their website, they have lots of before and after photos. They have 70 of them I believe encompassing most, if not all, of the potential reasons to have orthopedic surgery such as fixing a angle deformity of legs, growth plate deformity, tibia fracture, hip reconstruction, arm lengthening, leg lengthening, hip replacement, stature lengthening etc..
Rozbruch has a profile over at Vitals.com and he has a perfect 4 out of 4 stars from 8 reviewers as of today December 11, 2011. But not really sure how to translate that over to leg lengthening. As the reviews could be from a variety of other surgeries and procedures, etc.. But at least it makes me likely to consider him as a doctor and more likely to give him a chance at a consultation.
9/29/11: My goal is to contact every hospital that I have listed on this site to get a rough idea as to costs, height increases, and timelines. I will post the email replies that I receive here on this site so it saves you the effort in having to do the same thing.
