Femur lengthening and nonunion repair after tumor

Doctor: S. Robert Rozbruch

Patient: Karina

Karina had a bone tumor removed from her distal femur. Initial reconstruction resulted in nonunion, 7 cm shortening, and varus deformity.

Postop 1:
Surgery was done to repair the distal femur nonunion, correct the varus deformity, and lengthen the proximal femur with an Ilizarov/ Taylor Spatial Frame.

After a 7 cm lengthening and deformity correction, Karina is funtioning very well.
