Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is a biological process involving the formation of new bone between viable bone segments that are gradually separated by incremental traction. This technology has proved useful in several craniomaxillofacial applications where conventional techniques were previously used. This article describes DO and demonstrates three disparate uses for this technology.
