Limb Reconstruction

The Limb Reconstruction

Limb reconstruction refers to techniques where the shape and function, or length of a bone in the arm or leg is altered, due to a problem from birth, or due to trauma.

Limb reconstruction surgery lengthens or straightens, or ‘reconstructs’ a bone or joint (deformed limb) using an external fixator, or frame.
