LimbplastX Procedure -
Consolidation Phase & Completion

PRECICE STRYDE

Once your desired length/height goal has been achieved then the lengthening phase is stopped and the consolidation phase begins. During this phase newly regenerated bone will begin to fully harden. Even though you will already be walking, certain restrictions must continue to be adhered to until follow up x-rays confirm that more strenuous physical activities can safely be resumed.

It is very important to continue with prescribed physical therapy regimens as well as dietary and supplement recommendations.

You can return to Las Vegas to have follow-up x-rays and examinations performed or have reports sent to our practice for review. Dr. Debiparshad will then make final recommendations via video chat or by email.

Distraction / Consolidation Times
During the consolidation phase, it is very important to adhere to the strict activity limitations set forth by the doctor. As x-rays are reviewed to confirm that progressive healing and bone regeneration has occured, gradual activity restrictions will be lifted.

Strenuous sports and other high impact physical activities must be avoided for additional lengths of time and until you are cleared by the doctor. Please review the guides below for general activity restriction times.

PRECICE 2.2

Once your desired length/height goal has been achieved then the lengthening phase is stopped and the consolidation phase begins. The newly regenerated bone will begin to fully harden and weight bearing restrictions must continue to be adhered to until follow up x-rays confirm that normal walking and other physical activities can be safely resumed.

At this point patients can leave the Las Vegas area and return home. However, it is very important to continue with prescribed physical therapy regimens as well as dietary and supplement recommendations.

You can return to Las Vegas to have follow-up x-rays and examinations performed to be cleared to return to normal walking and other activities or have x-rays sent to our practice for review. Dr. Debiparshad will then make final recommendations via video chat or by email.
