Welcome to the Leg Lengthening & Reconstruction Patient Support Service

Your Limb, Your Life, My Support

Limb (Leg) Lengthening & Reconstruction can be a life and limb changing journey for the patient and their loved ones. The magnitude of this 'journey' should never be taken lightly and therefore, never walked alone. 


My focus is to provide an holistic approach to your Leg Lengthening & Reconstruction journey by providing:


  • Ongoing professional nursing support;
  • Education on 'life in frame' or with a lengthening nail / prosthesis; and
  • Coordination of your care with your Specialist.


These services are important throughout each stage of your journey whether you require lengthening, a joint replacement, deformity correction or osseointegration.


I am here to help you:


  • 24/7 - by phone, email or Skype;
  • As a single port of contact; and
  • As a direct link to your Specialist.


This enables you and your loved ones to navigate your lengthening & reconstruction journey in a supported, convenient and timely manner. This in turn promotes independence in self care and enhances wellbeing on your way to recovery.
