Single Leg Lengthening Experience – Sonay Yuksel, painter

Hi everyone. My life was ruined due to a bathroom accident in 2010. There were severe damages on my hip and knee. My hip surgery was a success but I could not imagine that this successful operation can cause a more serious trouble for me. Because my left leg appeared to be shorter by 6-7 cm than the other one. The knee was displaced from its place. 1.5 year passed since my first surgery. My life was a total nightmare…

I was in search for an experienced surgeon in order to have my left leg lengthened. But this was not possible… None of the doctors I visited was interested in my case due to the prosthesis in my hip.

Both my limb shortness and displaced knee had put me in a deep despair. I was left with negative responses from 21 different doctors in single month…

At a point where all my hopes were lost, I got a chance to know my doctor Mr. Ozgur with a recommendation from another doctor… His first confident and warm response, “It is possible to get rid of this problem with the help of modern technology”, made me scream from happiness…

One half of me could not believe, while the other half thought “why not”… I could not keep my tears of happiness, I thought of making somebody else happy in return. That voice is still on my ears…

And it became a reality. An unbelievable lengthening surgery was performed with the help of a magical system implanted into the bone. The humanity side of this procedure was more important. The support from the side was immense.

I understood that we shouldn’t lose our hope no matter what we go through. “Never lose your hope” has become a golden rule of my life. A great doctor who performs such miraculous operations. A very kind person who knows how to be successful and whose heart is filled with love for humanity.

Believe me, it would not be an exaggeration if I said he is the only hero God gave me a chance to meet. How fortunate I am because of the life you gave back to me dear doctor…
