I had just posted an article telling you guys that a group of surgeons that used a revolutionary new way to graft new bone to a woman’s leg and also lenghtne her legs by injecting stem cells. Well someone from the Make Me Taller boards have gotten in contact with the the head of Beauty Plaza clinic situated in Moskow.
You can find the board discussion HERE.
From what I see on the boards and the people who have contacted the researchers at the Russian Institute, the stem cell method for limb lengthening will be available very soon. Apparently Ekaterina Kulneva (the assistant) answered for Alexander Teplyashin that the height increase method /therapy will be available by next year, 2013. Alexander teplyashin has a patent for height increase with artificial stem cells implant already. Of course like all breakthrough new scientific developments, there has been little literature or evidence backing up their claims. The only thing one can do is either choose to volunteer themselves to be one of their first patients (or guinea pigs) and try out their treatment yourself or wait a few years to see what happens. No pricing is available at this time.
A board member stated that ” I think that this stem cells will be injected on bone and you will be able to walk during the process( mean grow)” and they claim that 2.5 cms can be gained in 1 month through this type of treatment.”
Another board member who emailed the people states that “First of all, the method is not a clinical procedure at the moment. People say it will be in a year, but in my e-mail they haven’t told anything about that. Second, they are talking about an: “bone tissue biological graft based on human stem cell’s”. This bone graft will be implied in an bone defect that will activate tissue regeneration. In preclinical results the total regeneration was 2,5cm. Total regeneration was found in three months after operation. It is expected to increase human bones with 8-10cm. The advantages of this method ( as they claim ) are short term of the gap regeneration and the lack of strict physical activity restriction during recovery period.”

This method does appear to be a truly legitimate way to increase one’s height as a complete alternative to the traditional approach of limb lenghtening through the Ilizarov method. The maximum height increase available at this time is 8 cm (3 inches). From the discussion, that means that one gets 4 cm for each limb part, femur and tibia. This however still depends a lot on the stretching ability of the muscles and skin around the bone.
