A Wealth of Experience

The limb lengthening and deformity team at Carolinas HealthCare System has tremendous experience treating patients with limb deformities and discrepancies. Joseph Hsu, MD, and Brian Brighton, MD, have nearly two decades of combined experience treating patients with limb deformities and discrepancies.

The Most Advanced Limb Lengthening Procedures and Techniques

By combining internal and external fixation approaches, Dr. Hsu and Dr. Brighton utilize the most advanced limb lengthening techniques available.

Integrated Rehabilitation Program

Originally developed under Dr. Hsu’s management in the United States military, the idea of an integrated rehabilitation program means patients can undergo the full spectrum of care – from the procedure through rehabilitation – at Carolinas HealthCare System care locations.

In collaboration with Carolinas Rehabilitation, this “return to performance" clinical pathway is designed to return patients of all walks of life back to the activities they love - as quickly as possible.
