Lower limb reconstruction comprises biological joint re-alignment, treatment of malunions, nonunions and modern limb lengthening techniques.
Lower limb reconstruction is a relatively new and fast developing subspecialty of orthopaedic and trauma surgery.
It comprises biological joint re-alignment including the treatment of malunions, nonunions, modern limb lengthening techniques usually using minimally invasive external fixation. It also includes management of bone and joint infections including osteomyelitis and septic arthritis.
When you meet with your consultant surgeon you will be talked through the entire reconstruction process. They will discuss with you what'll happen before, during and after the procedure and any pain you may experience. Take this time with your consultant surgeon to ensure your mind is put at rest.
Lower limb reconstruction encompasses a variety of procedures with the ultimate aim of helping improve the quality of life for patients with various complex and difficult lower limb problems.
Commonly, it can also provide a solution to problems that would otherwise end up with joint replacement surgery at an early and relatively young age. Occasionally in seriously damaged or deformed lower limbs it can also result in limb salvage.
