“PRECICE STRYDE” – The Newest Limb Lengthening Technology Available
“PRECICE STRYDE” is the latest and most advanced limb lengthening system available anywhere in the world. Largely, the “PRECICE STRYDE” is a newer version of the previous “PRECICE 2” version of intramedullary nail system. It provides many innovations and benefits, including enhanced comfort of the patients and extra weight bearing tolerance & capabilities; thus being the new benchmark for the future of limb lengthening procedures.
It must be noted that both systems are nearly the same; they both employ motorized intramedullary nails, thus are internally embedded into the patient’s bones; either Femur or Tibia, thereby significantly reducing any chances of infections as the cuts are stitched after the implantation is performed. In comparison to“LON”, “Holyfix” & “Ilizarov” methodologies; where external fixators are necessary for the extension of the bones. It must also be noted that both “PRECICE STRYDE” & “PRECICE 2” systems are much less painful, in comparison to the methods employing external fixators, and generally patients are much relaxed and comfortable during the extension phases in these systems.
The new “PRECICE STRYDE” system has essentially reduced the difficulties of “PRECICE 2” system:
- “PRECICE STRYDE” nails are made of stainless steel, which have been proven as being much stronger and sturdier than “PRECICE 2” intramedullary titanium-made nails.
- “PRECICE STRYDE” and its stainless steel nails can easily bear the full weight of the patients; thus with only a few weeks of crutch usage, patients are generally able to move around with ease and without any external support mechanism. To compare, “PRECICE 2” system was not full weight bearing, as the titanium nails could only bear partial weight of the patients thus the use of wheelchairs, crutches or some other type of supporting device was necessary to move around.
- With “PRECICE STRYDE” the usage of blood thinning medication is not compulsory, which means reduced costs.

If Precice Stryde method is out of your budget, you may check other high quality limb lengthening procedures which might suit your financial and scheduling (time) concerns better.
PRECICE 2 – one of the most comfortable, developed and well-practiced methods in the world. This methodology is well practiced and applied by several of our doctors in Turkey. The only significant difference from Stryde is the limited capability of the “PRECICE” nails to bear the full weight of the patient, during the recovery phases (After lengthening period is over, patients can walk once again)
LON – our most preferred method (chosen by 70-80% of all our patients) because of its shorter recovery period compared to Holyfix; at the same time significantly lower price than Precice 2.2 and Stryde.
HOLYFIX – this procedure was developed in order to eliminate the weaknesses of classical Ilizarov methodology and the devices used in this procedure are monolateral (single-sided); thus are much more compact and easy to operate for the patients.
ILIZAROV – this was the first known method for limb lengthening. Although a more modern and developed version of this methodology (Holyfix) is used more, Ilizarov method is still a reliable choice of many, and not only for limb lengthening treatments, but also for bow legs, knock knees and multiple bone fractures.
