Summary

The provider fuses the end plates of the lower fibula to interrupt its growth. This surgical procedure stops the growth of the fibula to prevent it from growing longer than the tibia of the same leg or the fibula of the other leg during the growth phase. The provider performs the procedure to equalize the length of both legs as the patient grows.
