Distraction Osteogenesis is a gradual incremental bone lengthening technique. It has been utilized extensively in long bones for limb lengthening for many years. It has more currently been utilized in the craniofacial complex to lengthen and advance facial structures that are deficient. This is multidisciplinary treatment that includes an orthodontist and craniofacial surgeon.

It has the unique advantage of being utilized in patients of any age (infant to the elderly) and has the ability of correcting large magnitude deficiences and increasing soft tissue as well.

Drs Hanson & Melugin have extensive experience in this area. They have specialized training and have extensively treated many patients with distraction. They have extensively lectured nationally and internationally on the topic and have many publications and several text book chapters on Distraction.
