Epiphysiodesis is a pediatric surgical procedure in which the epiphyseal (growth) plate of a bone is fused either temporarily or permanently to delay growth of a long bone. This procedure is often used to slow or halt the growth of a morphologically normal leg to allow a shorter leg to grow to a matching length.
