We turn our patients’ dreams into reality by improving not only the length and shape, but also the function of their arms and legs.
Dong Hoon Lee
Donghoon Advanced Limb Lengthening Reconstruction Institute has made many innovations in surgical techniques to overcome the complications of conventional lengthening methods.
Originally, bone grafts were needed in cases of insufficient bone regeneration and some patients had to live with partially healed bones. To address this problem, Dr. Donghoon Lee successfully developed a technique using BMAC (Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate) to enhance bone healing, and published these results for the first time. A patient can now return to normal daily activities sooner than before. In addition, Dr. Lee made technical innovations for fast and safe recovery by preventing valgus change in the LON (Lengthening Over Nail) technique and using the LATN (Lengthening And Then Nailing) method.

Donghoon Advanced Limb Lengthening Reconstruction Institute is a recognized world leader in limb lengthening and deformity correction.
As a limb lengthening and deformity correction field American text book author, Dr. Donghoon Lee has won multiple grand prizes (2013, 2014, 2015, 2017) in world societies such as ILLRS, LLRS, and Europe Kuntscher Society.
The first PRECICE surgery performed in Asia The largest volume of PRECICE surgeries performed by a single surgeon in Asia Minimally invasive technique, minimal scarring, simultaneous leg deformity correction with lengthening, and prevention of valgus change in the tibia Minimized possibility of nonunion with use of BMAC (Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate) 0% incidence of nonunion
Lengthening Over Nail
Minimal incision and scarring Simultaneous leg deformity correction with lengthening and prevention of valgus change Minimized possibility of nonunion with use of BMAC (Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate) 0% incidence of nonunion
Lengthening and Then Nailing
Shortened recovery time (around 2 months), returning sooner to normal daily activities than original methods, and excellent bone formation Minimal incision and scarring, simultaneous leg deformity correction is possible with lengthening, and prevention of valgus change The first LATN (Lengthening And Then Nailing) operation performed successfully in Asia The largest volume of LATN cases in Asia
