CICLLR is a medical center that work in the field of limb lengthening and bone deformity correction of either babies, children or adults.

Limb lengthening is indicated either cosmetically or to treat a pathological medical condition. It is used to increase height in short stature persons and or achondroplastic dwarf.

Many pathological conditions can now be treated successfully using limb lengthening and deformity correction technique. These conditions are either congenital anomalies as: Fibular and tibial hemimelia, PFFD ( proximal focal femoral deficiency ) or congenital short femur and congenital pseudo arthrosis of tibia or femur. Also, club foot problem which is now solved without surgery using ponseti method. From the other side, many other orthopedic and trauma problems could be solved successfully using external fixators as Ilizarov , Taylor spatial frame, Orthofix and others. Some of these conditions are: intra and juxta articular fractures. This means the fractures which are inside the joint as the knee, ankle and elbow joints or just close to them. This make the internal fixation is not suitable and risky. Also, it can solve many problems as non union of fractures, delayed union and mal union. This mean it can solve the problem of any fracture united in a wrong direction.

One of the most prominent orthopaedists worldwide, Dr. Yasser Elbatrawy is famous for limb lengthening and reconstruction (LLR). His Cairo International Centre for Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction (CICLLR) is the destination of patients from all over the world, especially USA, England, Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain and Japan.

CICLLR, not just a place for operations, arranges patients’ accommodation and care during their stay in Cairo. It is a policy of CICLLR to maintain the privacy of patients in general, as individuals of royal families of foreign countries and some nationally and internationally renowned movie stars have been treated. Arranging for a surgery is just a click away of your fingers, where necessary pre-/post-operative steps are taken upon directly contacting Dr. Elbatrawy.

Thanks to the great renown achieved by Dr. Elbatrawy in short stature lengthening, LLR and Ilizarov surgeries, one of the greatest private hospitals in Switzerland, has contracted with him as a visiting professor on a monthly basis to examine cases and operate on patients.

Dr. Elbatrawy has worked with the most famous specialists in limb lengthening for many years: 3 years with Dr. Maurizio Catagni (worldwide leading Ilizarov surgeon and founder of the Association for the Study and Application of the Methods of Ilizarov ? ASAMI) in which he has earned ASAMI fellowship; 2 years with Dr. Dror Paley, Dr. John Herzenberg and Dr. Kevin Tetsworth, University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD, USA, in which he studied for his doctoral degree in limb lengthening and reconstruction surgeries and the University of Maryland fellowship in paediatric LLR and bone deformity correction; and 4 months in Ilizarov Institute, Kurgan, Siberia, in 2000 where he earned the advanced diploma of Ilizarov surgeries.

The Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Centre, Baltimore, Maryland invites Dr. Elbatrawy on an annual basis to participate in instruction in the Annual International Course for Limb Lengthening and Bone Deformity Correction held in September yearly.

Since Dr. Elbatrawy specialized in limb lengthening and bone deformity correction in 1996, and his presentation of many research papers in specialized international conferences, he has been receiving invitations to participate in instruction in specialized courses in different countries. He also conducts demonstrational surgeries to train surgeons in such countries on LLR using special computer software and on applying Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) to obtain the most precise results.

Dr. Elbatrawy has been chosen as Secretary-General for the second International Congress on External Fixation scheduled for October 2007 in Cairo
