Limb length discrepancy must be considered in the total context of both the patient and all the available modalities of treatment. The clinical and radiographic assessment must be thorough. The cause and extent of discrepancy are of primary concern, but selection of patients for surgery must also include consideration of accompanying deformities and disabilities, the patient's tolerance, and the patient's stature.
