Dr. Michael A. Campbell, a Quinnipiac University alum, shows the leg differences of patient Natashia Christian at the practice's Chesapeake, VA location Friday, August 21, 2015. Dr. Campbell performed the groundbreaking surgery on Natashia in an effort to straighten her bowed legs and add three inches of height. Natashia has XLH-Linked Hypophosphatemia, a hereditary bone disease. Natashia's right leg previously was shorter and more curved than the left. Now, it is approximately 2 inches longer and straighter. Surgery on the left leg is set to occur later, possibly by the end of the year.
