In this very special interview with Dr. Janet Conway of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics (RIAO) & International Center of Limb Lengthening (ICLL) at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, MD, we discuss her take on various topics surrounding the cosmetic stature lengthening surgery to get taller.
Dr. Conway was my limb lengthening surgeon who did an amazing job for me and so I had to wrap up my final entry in my top limb lengthening (LL) surgeons with her. With over 20 years of experience as a limb lengthening and deformity reconstruction specialist, she is one of the best when it comes to ensuring a good outcome when aiming to get taller.
