Specific surgical procedures used in reconstructing a limb after tumor removal includes:
Expandable endoprosthetic implants are available for growing children or adolescent patient. In the event that amputation is required to control a tumor, we have the skill and experience to perform these procedures safely and effectively, including technically demanding amputations around the limb girdles, such as hemi -pelvectomy (removal of one leg and half of the pelvis) and forequarter (arm and shoulder) amputations.

Our trained and skilled Surgical Oncologist plays the major role while selecting the operable cases, performing a complete surgery by removing the cancerous body part which has clear margins and removing all the lymph nodes. During surgery dissected specimen is sent for a frozen section to the Oncopathologist for immediate report on the margins. If the margins of the dissected body part are not free from cancer, further dissection is carried out to achieve clear margins to prevent recurrences. The quality of the surgery determines the postoperative quality of the life of the patient.
