Electrical Stimulation and Limb Lenghting

Hi, Frank Gratke here, son Kevin, Aitken class D, right leg. Electrical Stimulation(ES) is now being used for spinal cord patients. The electroids are placed directly into the muscles. This allows a stimulation of the muscles in a very controlled envioronment. We have Dr Brain Black here in Milwaukee Wisconsin. We have heard of Dr Randall Betz who does spinal cords and Dr Dror Paley, who carves hips ,out of Maryland called me a few years ago.I am of the believe an Aitken Class D can be surgery corrected if ES is used. If I can get the three doctors talking I believe my son can have 2 legs almost normal.Need some help with this.
