Limb Salvage Surgery For Tumors

Limb Salvage Surgery for Tumors

Limb salvage is a surgical procedure that replaces a diseased bone and reconstructs a functional limb by using a metal implant, a bone graft from another person, or a combination bone graft and metal implant.

The goal of this type of surgery is to remove a tumour with minimal complications while maintaining acceptable function, durability, and appearance of the limb. Here, at BLK Super Speciality Hospital our team of expert doctors ensure that a tumour is removed with minimal complications and to resuscitate full mobility of the limb.


There are two different kinds of procedures for Bone Tumors and Bone Sarcomas to ensure healthy recovery of a patient. At BLK, we offer the best assistance to our patient with an experienced team of doctors. The procedure for both severities involves:

Bone Tumor: The first priority of a surgeon is to completely remove the malignant lesion and a part of normal tissue to further reduce the risk of low-grade tumours of bone. During the surgery, muscle, bone and other tissues affected by a tumour are also removed.

Bone Sarcomas: Bone Sarcomas or Soft tissue sarcomas are removed by limb-sparing surgery wherein a tumour, lymph nodes or tissues are removed. A 1-inch healthy tissue is also removed on all side of a tumour to further decrease the chances recurrence.

Radiation or chemotherapy may be advised post operation. The limb salvage procedure is conducted after the removal of a tumour and progress of the affected area.

After Care

Post-limb-salvage surgery care is verycrucial and proper guidance is required. At BLK Super Speciality Hospital, we have a team of the physical and occupational therapist who will help you in regaining full mobility of the affected limb. The goal is to make the patient move freely, function independently and accept changes in body image. A patient may be given Walker, brace, cane or other devices before they are discharged.
