Distraction osteogenesis (DO) has revolutionized craniofacial surgery. DO involves cutting bone and then slowly moving the cut ends of the bone, which causes new bone formation in the resulting gap. Distraction osteogenesis can be used in the lower jaw (mandible), upper jaw (maxilla) and face. A number of distraction devices are commercially available.
