Limb Salvage Surgery

Tumours in bones and around joints is a very painfull and difficult condition to treat. The Tumours cause pain, swelling, limitation of joint movements and difficulty in activities of daily life. Tumours can be benign( localised tumours ) or Malignanat ( which spread to other parts of body. The Malignanat tumours are dangerous as most of them are untreatable. The only treatment option for Malignanat tumours is Amputation of the involved limb.
 
Unfortunately most of the malignanat bone tumours occur in young patients. This life and Limb threatning condition is generally considered hopeless. But now with our vast experience in joint replacement,we have started offering them " Limb Salvage Surgeries" . This not only saves the limb but gives a permanent cure to the disease also.
 
Limb salvage surgery means the tumour, the involved bone and the adjoining joint, all are excised in one piece. The whole segment is then replaced with a custom made artificial joint. With the help of Onco surgeon ,the tumour is removed along with a  healthy margin of tissue all around so that there is no chance of recurrence.
 
In children / teenagers the growth of the affected limb stops due to damaged epiphysis ( growth plate ). To compensate for this we use expandable implants. The lenght of this implant is increased every 6 months, so that there is no shortening of the limb.
 
Till now we have done 25 Limb Salvage procedures including Hip replacement, Knee replacement , Total Femur Replacement, Elbow replacement , Shoulder Replacement and Hemipelvis Replacement. Most of our patients are teenagers and are doing  well.
