The Positive Impact of the Procedure
This operation will benefit the amputee in the following ways
Initially, the old scar is removed, and tissue planes are separated to identify the layers of muscle, blood vessels, and finally, bone.Next, a bone-bridge is created between the two lower extremity bones, the tibia and the fibula. By forming synostosis, this provides a bony framework, recreating a heel type structure with weight-bearing capabilities.
