Treatment for Limb Salvage Surgery

The limb salvage consists of cancer removal and about one inch of healthy tissue. It may be replaced by plates, bone parts taken from a patient’s own body or bone parts taken from the donor’s body and frozen up until needed for transplantation. Transplanted bone eventually develops into the remaining bone of the patient. Prior to surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation can be used for the shrinkage of the tumor.
