Leg Length Inequality

A rare, but very real, health complication which some Americans have to live with is unequal leg length. Leg length inequality is more than just an irritation; it can cause a person to suffer serious pain and physical limitations. Additionally, it may produce a number of negative psychological effects that seriously harm a person’s mental health. Because of all of these complications, many people seek treatment to rectify their leg length inequality.

Regrettably, people who receive defective hip implants may be more at-risk for suffering from unequal leg lengths due to complications caused by the defective hip implant, such as a loosening of the implant. At Williams Hart, our DePuy lawsuit lawyers have made it our priority to help patients who have been adversely affected by a defective DePuy hip implant. Speak with one of our attorneys about the legal options available to you by calling 800-761-3187.

Treating Leg Length Inequality

Depending on a variety of factors, including age and health, a medical professional will advise a certain treatment option to help even out a person’s legs. Options for treatment include:

  • Shoe lifts – a lift is placed within a shoe to better equalize the length of the legs
  • Lengthening surgery – an external fixation device is placed on the leg in order to slowly extend it

Both these treatment options, although very different, may provide a patient with a measure of relief from the pain and difficulties that unequal leg lengths can cause.
