Introducing HeightRx at the International Center for Limb Lengthening

As part of the renowned International Center for Limb Lengthening, HeightRx helps men who are unhappy with their stature achieve the lifelong goal of becoming taller. Studies show that height and success are closely related, with perks that include more career opportunities and better pay. By adding several inches to a patient’s height, Dr. Assayag can level the playing field, allowing all men to enjoy the same personal, professional and social benefits of being taller in a world where stature matters.

To ensure an optimal outcome, Dr. Assayag pursues the safest route possible using the latest orthopedic techniques. As one of the most experienced limb lengthening surgeons in the U.S., he has helped to pioneer implantable devices like the Precice Nails. He has seen firsthand how these devices have revolutionized the field, offering outstanding results without the pain and inconvenience of external fixators. Throughout the years, this has reinforced his passion for innovative solutions that put patients first.

In addition to cosmetic height enhancement, Dr. Assayag offers treatment for patients with complex orthopedic conditions, including reconstructive procedures for bone defects, limb deformities and osteomyelitis, as well as bowleg and knock knee correction. He can also revise bone lengthening procedures performed by surgeons with less orthopedic experience, providing superior results that are safer and more effective than ever.
