I have been saying it for a long time now & some members on this forum are finally finding out that you get what you pay for……the good surgeons don't give it away for cheap….

Finding a very reliable doctor and picking a less expesive method, LON/LATN/External. For instance, if I had less funds for LL I would go to the same doctor, but do LON instead of an internal nail. Some doctors only use internal nails for cosmetic lengthening cases, so you have cross them off the list.

Remember that there's always a trade off. If you have less money, then usually you should have more time.

but tall,
I think that like the best price you can get with a good doctor is Dr. Jamal. A patient paid total aroung 50,000 USD which is in my opinion more reasonably priced than 70k with betz. If jamal is good and less expensive why isn't everyone seeing him ? should't we all be forcing doctors to lower prices by finding better and cheaper nails. Don't say they aren't trying because they have plenty of nails! And even you got with Dr. M who is more reasonable at 60k. Basically I don't have the money to spend 100k. 50-60k yes. Im not willing to bet my legs for it, but I do know that Dr. M and Dr. Jamal have good reviews thats what this was more about. Im not one of the dumb asses on here looking for a 10,000 quickee with Dr. Sarin from hell

I think Dr. M & Jamal both fit into your category, but we have to wait to see the final outcome of patients with Dr. Jamal. They are still recovering & one has bone growth issues. I didn't think you were one of those dumb @#$%. Smiley

I don't think it's unsafe with a reputable doctor. I had absolutely no doubts going into it with Dr. M. You shouldn't be worried, just choose a good facility with a qualified surgeon.

The Russian Ilizarov Centre does a pretty good job--all for only $12,000-$15,000. Dr. Xia is a bit more expensive at $30,000, but that's because he offers LON. Dr. Mitkovic is excellent, and he is only about 10k. The guys practically has a cult following. Grin

those "cheap doctors" are not recognized by other LL surgeons. they are not even internationally recognized.

that is why they all got fked up. not because they were cheap.

you need board certified doctors for LL. not some cheap wanna be lisorav surgeons.

try using doctors from the ASAMI BOARD FOR INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS.  neither sarin or sringari are on the board or recognised.

Not to discourage you, but my motto is go BIG or go home. In other words, I would never risk my legs other than with the most reputable doctors in the field, even if it cost an arm and a leg (no pun intended).

Why do people always answer this way when asked for the best doctor bang per buck? It's a simple and perfectly reasonable question yet post ll members here always say more price = better outcome.

With that in mind, I'll answer your question OP. Nobody knows and because some post ll members have already spent a lot of money on the surgery, they don't wanna see you getting a better deal.

Sysop,
 what is your opinion on doctors like Mangal Parihar and Mitkovic?? I know you are passionate about the idea of lower costs for those struggling with their height? Now I know they aren't on your doctor recommended list, but do you have an opinion of them? I don't know squat about them but 10-15k is appealing to the ear

Mitkovic doesn't do CLL anymore as far as I heard which sucks because I heard good things from his patients. Idk who Parihar is though but listen, never trade quality for the quantity of money. This is too big of a deal to risk going to someone who isn't professional enough because one wrong thing can lead you to being f***** up for life and then regretting it. Anyway, don't risk it just because you want it now and asap, it's better to wait. Good things come to those who wait Cool

there is a good chance that Parihar is quality and also inexpensive.

he is like the vice president of asami. internationally recognized.

sarin and sringari are not internationally recognized. are not asami members or anything. in fact you could even speculate they are only orthopedic surgeons and not distraction osteogenesis specialists.

Honestly, if Dr. Mitkovic ain't practicing anymore, then your best bet is the Russian Ilizarov Centre. They are probably the best ll doctors in the world for the 10-15k price. The only downside is that they use externals, hence the lower cost.

To be honest, if she is a "tall guys" person then she shouldn't think negative. She should be more positive because the other person went through great depths (instead of luck of parentage) just to be a taller person. I have imagined life after LL; seeing the same people who knew me at my old height, and they react "How are you SO MUCH taller than before?" I'll just smile. Worst case is if they see the scars and react negatively, I'll react "wth, living my own life my own way".

Also when it comes to families and being a parent, there have been special cases:
Bill Gates father was at least 8 inches taller than the great man himself, yet I know someone who is 14 years old and 6'3 - his father is my current height of 5'8 and his mother is around 5'4
Which shows that if you are a short parent you won't necessarily have short kids, and vice versa.
