Recovery after bone lengthening surgery. Girl with crutches recovering after undergoing distraction osteogenesis surgery on her right leg. This procedure involved cutting the femur (thigh bone) and inserting a telescopic nail into the shaft. The nail is then extended by about 1 millimetre a day over several months, which induces new bone growth in the resulting space between the cut ends of the bone. This procedure is often performed on individuals with bone deformities or shorter bones than normal. Photographed at Montmartre Surgery Centre, Paris, France.
