Limb Salvage Cancer Surgery

Limb Salvage Surgery is a procedure done to completely remove bone tumours as well as soft-tissue cancers while preserving the patients’ limb both in form as well as function.  At specialized centres, limbs affected by bone and soft tissue tumours can be saved from amputation in more than 90% of patients. The surgeon removes not just the bone affected by cancer, but also a layer of its normal surrounding tissue. The bone removed during this procedure is replaced using bone (taken from patients’ own body) grafts, metal implants, prosthesis, or a same tumour bearing bone after being rendered tumour free after removal from the body. Muscles for soft tissues from other parts of the body may sometimes be required to close the wound. It is highly recommended that such treatment should be performed right from the beginning at a specialized centre routinely doing these procedures, as even a wrongly performed biopsy can make limb salvage difficult leading to amputation.
