Special orthopaedic surgery capabilities include limb-lengthening services using computer driven, external fixators to correct congenital deformities or traumatic injuries of extremities. A diagnostic Gait Lab provides surgeons with video and electrodiagnostic data to determine the best surgical approach for each patient. By studying a patient’s gait and monitoring how muscle groups work during the gait cycle, physicians can pinpoint which surgical technique will result in an optimal outcome.
