Welcome to The Paley Advanced Limb Lengthening Institute
Throughout the last twenty-four years, I have dedicated my career to improving the lives of children and adults who suffer from a wide variety of complex congenital, developmental, post-traumatic and many rare orthopedic conditions.
The Paley Advanced Limb Lengthening Institute offers patients and visiting surgeons the most technologically advanced limb lengthening and deformity treatments available in the world today.
In 1986, I journeyed to Kurgan, Western Siberia where Gavril Ilizarov was using external fixators to treat patients with difficult orthopedic problems. His innovation and forward thinking were the impetus behind my dream of dedicating my entire practice to this type of work. I was the first North American to practice the Ilizarov method and since then have developed over 100 surgical procedures and treated more than 11,000 patients from across the nation and around the world.
My career has allowed me to combine my 3-dimensional spatial aptitude, and understanding of human anatomy and biomechanics to find solutions to many previous untreatable orthopedic diseases. I feel honored to see the application of my research, publications and teaching applied by many orthopedic surgeons around the globe. Through them, I have been able to better the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients.
This website presents detailed information about the limb lengthening and reconstructive surgery treatment process. We welcome your questions, comments or suggestions and invite you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to helping you whether you are a potential new patient, a family member reading about us for the first time, a longstanding patient, or a health professional.
