Hi Renjith,

Welcome to HCM.
Yes height can be increased by surgery but is not recommended. You already have a good height.
Usually this surgery is not done to increase the height but to lengthen the shortened limb to avoid limping.
It is expensive and accompanied by lot of operation risk and complications.
The charges will vary from hospital to hospital and I don't think they will do it just to increase your height.
