Limb Salvage Surgery

Treatments for Limb Salvage Surgery

Most of the time, the alternative to limb salvage surgery is limb amputation. While there is less of a risk of tumor recurrence in patients who have had amputation instead of limb salvage surgery, there is no difference in the mortality rates of the two types of patients. In addition, salvaged limbs function better than artificial limbs, although recovery is significantly longer.
