What is the Ilizarov Method?

Under the proper biological and mechanical conditions, an osteotomy (cutting of the bone) is performed while protecting the blood flow in the bone, and afterwards the ends of the bone are gradually removed in a controlled manner; this procedure is referred to as “Distraction osteogenesis”. During the lengthening process, all soft tissues, including nerves, muscles, and veins also become longer.
