Introduction to go in here.
Rings are placed around a limb and connected to the bone with wires or pins, in order to gradually correct a deformity
Rods are placed inside a bone, and a special magnet is used to ‘lengthen’ the rod over time
Tumours are rare, and range from simple bumps that can be left alone, to rare forms of bone cancer
Osteotomies are when a bone is cut and repositioned, to correct the shape
While a child is still growing, small plates can be placed near growth plates, to encourage the bone to grow in the right direction
