Hi @stardust59

Thank you for posting your question. I’m Jeet, the founder of My Seoul Secret (and former foreign patient in Korea for cosmetic medial treatment). I’m actually from Southern, California originally (Los Angeles and San Diego).

Thank you for referencing the medical term Brachydactyly Type D or BDD for short for clubbed thumbs, chubby thumbs, stubbed thumbs, potter’s thumbs or murderer’s thumbs, the last one sounds a bit harsh in my opinion. 

In Seoul we have a clinic in our network that is highly specialized in this treatment and surgery called  RAPHA Medience Orthopedic Surgery. They are highly specialized in short finger and toe (digits) lengthening surgeries as well as lengthening height and short stature, and also correcting Genu varum (also called bow-leggedness).

I’m really good at digging through the web, but I can’t seem to find information about Los Angeles surgeons specializing in this treatment. I did however come across:  The Limb Lengthening Institute of Los Angeles this may be a good place to start. 

I would also recommend going to a large general hospital or even UCLA medical center and asking their orthopedic department if they can make a referral. 

Good luck on your journey. If you plan to come to Seoul and have treatment here, we’d be happy to help you plan, organize and get treatment.
