Review on Distraction Osteogenesis Surgery

The procedure involves giving a surgical cut in the undersized bone (osteotomy) and fixing a distractor device across the cut using screws. Gradual activation of the device is begun a few days after surgery and leads to bone separation at the osteotomy, resulting in new bone formation in the gap created.
