Our story

At Team UnLimbited, we understand the practical, physical and emotional challenges faced by people born with limb difference – because we’ve experienced them ourselves. We know what it’s like to live with a disability. It’s what brought us together and continues to inspire the work we do.

Most of us are fortunate enough to give a hug with our own two hands, or feel the sand beneath our own two feet, but for others born with severe limb anomalies, performing life’s most basic actions is just simply not possible. For these children, limb saving and correction treatment is critical for a better quality of life. For many families though, access to these specialized surgical and rehabilitation treatments is not financially feasible.

AMPUTATION ALTERNATIVE

Limb lengthening and limb deformity correction is a very complicated process. Meticulous surgical technique, vigilant follow up, and aggressive rehabilitation are required for a successful outcome. The results of lengthening are highly dependent on the experience of the surgeon and his surrounding clinical staff.  Dr. Paley has been performing lengthening and limb deformity correction surgeries for over twenty-five years. He is currently the most experienced limb lengthening surgeon in the world, having performed over 17,000 lengthening surgeries.
