Survey about achondroplasia
We have designed a questionnaire with the purpose to better know the population connected to achondroplasia.
The questionnaire is optional and anonymous. The data obtained will be used for statistical purposes and to better understand the natural history of achondroplasia. Please consider answering.
If you would like to take the survey later, you can click on the link at the top "Register at BA"

This magazine article focuses on the social aspects of living with achondroplasia and talks about the daily lives of two children with this skeletal dysplasia. One of these children decided to undergo Ilizarov's technique, a limb lengthening surgery available as a treatment for achondroplasia. It is a long and painful process, but it can have an impact on the independence of a person of short stature.
