What is the PRECICE nail for limb lengthening?

Also known as: magnetic lengthening nail, PRECICE, limb lengthening.

The PRECICE nail is a magnetic lengthening nail that is used for correction of limb length discrepancies and deformity. Unlike traditional limb lengthening techniques which rely on external fixators, the PRECICE nail is an all-internal technique that provides early return of motion, less scarring, and better patient tolerance.
