Limb Reconstruction Surgery
Limb reconstruction is a highly specialized area within orthopedic surgery at Virginia Mason, offering patients a viable option for saving an extremity. Our surgeons work with a team of highly-trained specialists to perform limb reconstruction, with outcomes that exceed national averages.
Previously, when a bone tumor was large and surgery compromised the limb, or if injury was extensive, amputation was often the only treatment choice.
Today, with advances in surgical techniques, implant materials and tissue harvesting, Virginia Mason's orthopedic surgeons can give patients more options.
