07 Jul Patient of the Week – Emilio
Emilio was referred to us by a local clinic after suffering from a pathological fracture.
Further diagnostics and x-rays indicated he had a tumour in the same leg, a partial ligament tear in his knee, and degenerative joint disease in his elbow.
To avoid a lifetime of pain, the best option was amputation.
Emilio did exceptionally well and was back on his feet the day after surgery and ready to go home to his family for further rehabilitation.
