“Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Surgery Case Atlas”
Limb lengthening and reconstruction surgery is a relatively new subspecialty of orthopedic
surgery. The Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society (LLRS) became a member of the Board of Specialty Societies (BOS) of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in 1999, and we have been working over the last few years to create a Limb Deformity section in the educational program of AAOS. This is a work in progress, but I am confident that it will happen. We do find it difficult at times to define and differentiate ourselves since there is an apparent overlap with other subspecialties including adult reconstruction, trauma, foot and ankle, pediatrics, tumor, and upper extremity.
But we are unique and distinct. We use the principles of deformity correction and stress the relationships among the hip, knee, and ankle. We use osteotomy to correct deformity and leg length discrepancy, adhering to the principles of the Ilizarov method. We use external fixation as well as internal fixation, and we perform limb salvage and joint preservation surgery. We address both simple deformity and complex cases with multiapical deformity, bone loss, and infection. We are distinct from the other subspecialties of orthopedic surgery, and our
colleagues often call on us when they don’t know what to do or when they think our approach
will best suit their patient.
