Plastic Surgery For Reconstruction of Limbs
Reconstruction of the limbs is a complex undertaking as the reconstruction needs to ensure the full movement of the limbs and joints. Form and function must be maintained where possible. At all times, the surgeon must take into account skin coverage, the underlying nerves, tendons and muscles, the amount of wear and tear the skin would have to bear and range of movements of the adjacent joints.
Reconstruction of the limbs is done for patients who have had tumours removed, injuries to the limbs, burns or perhaps a wound from a complication of diabetes mellitus or poor blood circulation.
Our specialist is specifically trained to use a variety of skin grafts, local flaps, distant flaps and free flaps to reconstruct the structures of the limbs.
