Living with anisomelia in the arms is not easy. Performing tasks with uneven arms is a major source of stress and frustration for many. It is not uncommon for people with uneven limbs to develop body dysphoria. Dr. Shahab Mahboubian, D.O., MPH wants to boost awareness about the benefits of arm lengthening surgery to help patients overcome the shame and limitations they may experience.
Leg length discrepancy can be one of two types. One type is structural, where there is an actual, physical difference between the same bones in each limb. For example, a femur or other specific bone may actually be shorter in one leg than in the other. The other kind of leg length discrepancy is called a functional discrepancy. In a functional discrepancy, bones in the leg are of equal length, but some other factor creates a discrepancy. This is often related to muscle tightness which creates a problem in symmetry.
