Congenital Femoral Deficiency, Fibular Hemimelia, Limb Length Discrepancy Colorado Dr. Standard
Male patient with a limb length discrepancy discussing how he was treated at the International Center for Limb Lengthening

Cole was born with a limb length discrepancy, and the doctor they were referred to in Denver, Colorado, recommended amputation of his shorter limb. His parents did a lot of research and found the International Center for Limb Lengthening that could save his leg. His limb length discrepancy was due to a condition called Proximal Focal Femoral Deficiency (PFFD) or Congenital Femoral Deficiency (CFD). He had multiple treatments over the course of his childhood. His family enjoyed staying at the convenient Hackerman-Patz House right on Sinai Hospital’s campus. He is very grateful for his doctors and physical therapists at the International Center for Limb Lengthening who helped correct his limb length discrepancy.
