Yes.

It involves breaking both legs, inserting steel rods into both sides of the break, and slowly pulling the bones apart. It is one of the most painful procedures a patient can go through, and the healing time is several months.

It's usually only used on people who have one leg shorter than the other or people afflicted with dwarfism.

Good luck trying to do that with an athlete.
