With a cancer diagnosis, one usually expects to undergo surgery, chemotherapy, or some combination of the two. For Mark DuMoulin, the surgery to remove his tumor had an added complication; it took a large portion of his femur bone (21cm) with it.
Mark’s surgeons reconstructed his femur bone using pieces of his healthy bone to fill in the defect, but Mark still had a leg length discrepancy of about 2 inches. Using the PRECICE internal lengthening device, Mark was able to regrow his own bone and reach his height.
