Limb Reconstruction And Deformity Correction


Post-traumatic limb reconstruction and deformity correction are surgical procedures used to correct deformities and disabilities that occur as a result of traumatic injuries. These procedures are performed on both adults and children who have suffered injuries that have resulted in limb deformities or disabilities.

Limb reconstruction surgery involves the use of various techniques, including osteotomy (cutting of bone), bone grafting, and the use of external fixation devices such as Ilizarov or Taylor Spatial Frame. These techniques can be used to correct a wide range of limb deformities, including limb length discrepancy, angular deformity, joint dislocation, and malunion or non-union of fractures.

In adult patients, post-traumatic limb reconstruction is typically performed to correct deformities and disabilities resulting from fractures, dislocations, or other injuries that have not healed properly. This can lead to chronic pain, limited mobility, and other long-term complications.

In children, post-traumatic limb reconstruction and deformity correction are often performed to correct growth disturbances resulting from injuries that occur during the growth period. The procedures can help to ensure that the limb grows properly and functions normally, minimizing the risk of long-term complications.

Overall, post-traumatic limb reconstruction and deformity correction can help patients regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve their quality of life following a traumatic injury. These procedures are typically performed by orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in trauma and limb reconstruction.
