Tech workers getting leg-lengthening surgery that costs up to $150K: report

Tech workers from the tech sector comprise a significant portion of the patients getting leg-lengthening operations at a Nevada-based clinic. The procedure involves breaking the femurs and inserting surgical nails in each of a patient’s legs and inserting extendable nails. The nails are gradually extended over the next three months by one millimeter a day – eventually making the recovered patient several inches taller. The operation reportedly costs $70,000 to $150,000, depending on how many inches the patient wants to “grow,” as well as thousands of dollars more in follow-up costs.
