Based on your child's assessment, their care team from the Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Center will develop an individualized treatment plan and therapy program to optimize the function of the arm or leg. Following treatment, most patients have good mobility and can participate in typical daily activities, such as playing baseball and swimming.

Therapy is available at the Cincinnati Children's Burnet Campus or at one of our eight conveniently located outpatient centers. If you live outside Greater Cincinnati, we will coordinate the therapy plan with your doctors.

Family education and therapeutic exercises are important parts of your treatment. We encourage family involvement during therapy sessions. Parents receive the education and support they need to care for their child and to continue therapy at home.

Family Handbook: A Post-Procedure Guide

The Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Center is devoted to the treatment of pediatric patients with limb deformity / inequality issues. The purpose of this handbook is to help you understand how to properly care for your child after a limb lengthening and correction procedure. Although you will have a great deal of support during this process, you play a critical role in your child's healing and ultimate success with this treatment.
