Thanks for writing to us.
Illizaro treatment can cause lengthening of your legs upto some extent. However it will not help in reducing the muscle wasting that is associated with polio. You need to discuss the effectiveness with your orthopaedician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
