Research Posters

The International Center for Limb Lengthening is committed to conducting orthopedic research to advance treatment methods and improve patient outcomes. While some of the research of our physicians and International Center for Limb Lengthening Fellows is published as articles in journals, our research is also shared at orthopedic conferences and symposiums around the world.

Authors submit their research to a panel of orthopedic experts that reviews the research and determines if it is deemed worthy of presenting to the medical community. If selected, lead authors are invited to either share their research by giving an oral podium presentation or by preparing a poster or electronic poster (e-poster).

Below you will find a list of research posters and e-posters that the International Center for Limb Lengthening displayed at international orthopedic conferences and symposiums over the past few years. Please click on the image of the poster to magnify it.
