Greenwich teen’s right leg was too short. A Yale surgeon helped make it longer

Brady Lisjak is a 15-year-old from Greenwich who loves playing hockey and lacrosse, but he was hampered by a rare disorder called Ollier disease, which caused his right leg to be 2.5 inches shorter than his left. The disease causes non-cancerous growths, known as enchondromas, to form on the bone, leading to lack of growth. Thanks to a surgical procedure performed by Dr. David Frumberg of Yale New Haven Hospital, Brady is back playing sports.
