Four Steps to a New You



Meet with Dr. Banerjee to discuss your goals. He will design a personalized treatment plan and provide you with preoperative instructions to set you up for a successful surgery and the best possible outcomes.


Surgery With the Precice® System

The Precice system surgical procedure is minimally invasive and can generally be accomplished with incisions measuring just 1-1.5 inches. The operation takes approximately two hours for both limbs.



The Precice implant lengthens the bones internally while being managed by an external remote control. Regular physical therapy sessions help you return to full range of motion, weight-bearing and daily activity as quickly as possible.



Once you reach your desired height, the lengthening process is stopped. Regular check-ins and physical therapy continue as the newly formed bone solidifies and strengthens. Regular check-ins and physical therapy continue. Dr. Banerjee will review the follow-up X-rays to determine when it is safe to resume normal activity.

The Science of Limb Lengthening

Limb lengthening is a surgical procedure used to increase the length of a limb. It’s often employed to correct significant leg length discrepancies or bone growth irregularities, but it can also be used for cosmetic height enhancement. The technique is based on the body’s natural ability to regenerate new bone, soft tissue, ligaments, blood vessels and nerves.

When the tibia or femur is surgically separated into two segments and an internal lengthening device is inserted, it slowly separates the bone to create a small gap. The body creates new bone tissue to fill in this gap, increasing the overall length of the treated limb. The Precice system uses proprietary magnet technology to remotely extend the implant rod and elongate the bone by about 1 mm each day without the need for an external fixator.

Our Procedures


Bilateral Femur Lengthening

The femur extends from the hip joint to the knee joint and is the longest, strongest bone in the body. Bilateral femur lengthening involves inserting the Precice implant into the bone to gradually separate two segments of the femur, allowing new bone tissue to fill the space.


Bilateral Tibia Lengthening

The tibia is the larger of the two bones in the lower leg, connecting the knee to the ankle. In bilateral tibia lengthening, the bone is surgically divided into two segments and the Precice implant is inserted to gradually pull them apart, creating a gap for new bone tissue to form.


Staged Bilateral Femur Lengthening Followed by Bilateral Tibia Lengthening

Staged bilateral femur lengthening followed by bilateral tibia lengthening allows for the most overall height gain over two procedures. Treatment involves first lengthening the femur and then the tibia approximately one year later to ensure proper healing and rehabilitation.


Hardware Removal

Once the new bone has completely regenerated and you’ve achieved your desired height, the last step will be the removal of the Precice implant. This takes place after the distraction (lengthening) and consolidation (healing) phase of treatment. Hardware is typically removed one to two years after insertion, depending on your individual needs and goals.

Patient Testimonials

Real patients real results

Dr. Banerjee is amazing! I have worked around him and his patients for many years. His exacting standards for himself and his staff are the reason his work is second to none. The day I fractured my wrist, he was my first thought. I appreciate his talent and his bedside manner. Simply the best!


After our first conversation, Dr Banerjee put all of my worries at ease. It was easy to tell he always has his patients best interests at the front of his mind and approaches the conversation very well-collected and with sincerity. 

Zayed M.

I went to Dr Banerjee for a second opinion on having knee surgery. His staff is warm and welcoming. Dr Banerjee is as well, along with being reassuring, honest and, from what I've heard and read, an expert in his field. I am very thankful a dear friend recommended I go to him.

Cheryl W.

Dr. Banerjee is an exceptional physician, and I feel fortunate to have him managing my care. His charisma and remarkable bedside manner make him the superior choice. He explicitly communicated different treatment options, and took the time to address all of my concerns. His passion for medicine and genuine interest in my recovery were evident. Dr. Banerjee exudes the perfect combination of skill, trust, and compassion.

Jade L.

I can't thank Dr. Banerjee enough for their expertise and the amazing care they gave my child. They're the kind of doctor who combines experience with genuine kindness, and it made such a difference in our whole experience. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Banerjee to anyone, especially if you're looking for an orthopedic surgeon who's fantastic with kids. 

R. Bhandari

From the moment I met Dr. Banerjee, he listened to what I had to say and how I felt, that means a lot to me. After many years of knee pain and not being able to live the lifestyle I wanted, he agreed to do a total knee replacement. It was the best decision I ever made. He did an amazing job! Less than two months out and I am walking and biking like I haven’t been able to in years! It really changed my life!!!

Not only is he an amazing surgeon but also a terrific human being, that goes for all his staff and assistants as well, good, caring people. If you are lucky enough to have him work on you, I’m sure you’ll have a great experience like me.

David P.

The care I received from every member of Dr Banerjee's team made me feel I was family. True concern for my comfort, listened to and answered my questions thoroughly. Given the care that was best for me.

Chelle S.

As a physician myself, I attest that it is not everyday that you witness a surgeon who embodies affability, sensibility, technical superiority and produces outstanding outcomes. Dr. Rahul Banerjee is one such surgeon. After my mother-in-law suffered major orthopedic trauma while vacationing in France, we did a LOT of research and clearly identified Dr. Banerjee as an expert in orthopedic surgery. I had no question in mind that for best treatment and results it was in my mother in law’s best interest to be flown back to the US and be cared for by Dr. Banerjee. My mother in law is now doing very well, walking and well recovered. We could not be more pleased.

Masoud S.

Dr Banerjee is as always attentive to me and I feel l like he is not only my surgeon but also a personal friend. The staff were all friendly and very quick to attend to me - you don't make an appointment for X o'clock and sit for an hour to see the Doctor.

Jim T.

Fantastic experience. The entire staff is very professional and helpful. Dr. Banerjee is extremely knowledgeable, patient and listens to consider all patient's concerns.
