International Center for Limb Lengthening at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore

The International Center for Limb Lengthening (ICLL) is widely recognized as the most experienced center for limb lengthening and reconstruction in the world, committed to providing the most comprehensive and technologically advanced treatments available for children and adults with upper and lower limb length discrepancies, short stature, limb deformities, nonunions, bone defects, bone infections, joint contractures, and arthritis.

In addition, the ICLL has become a major referral center for the Ponseti method of clubfoot treatment and distraction treatment of Perthes disease, two new methods for the treatment of two common pediatric disorders. The ICLL also offers a state-of-the-art gait laboratory for motion and function analysis and other specialized studies. With an international reputation for excellence, the Center's physicians have treated patients from all 50 United States and more than 50 countries from six continents around the world.

The ICLL, part of the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics (RIAO), opened at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore in July 2001 in a brand new six-story facility designed by the Center's co-founders, Dror Paley, M.D., John E. Herzenberg, M.D., and Michael Mont, M.D. Paley and Herzenberg were the first team in the United States to dedicate their practices to limb lengthening and deformity reconstruction. Janet D. Conway, M.D., and Shawn C. Standard, M.D., and a podiatrist, Bradley M. Lamm, DPM, F.A.C.F.A.S., complete the team.
