Abstract

Successful limb reconstruction surgery not only relies on surgical skill but probably more on assessment and planning before intervention. A clear appreciation of the child as a whole, an understanding of natural history and the ability to carefully evaluate the patient clinically are key to successful treatment. The appropriate use of investigations and the ability to analyze, plan and execute a treatment plan is challenging and requires experience and training. This paper outlines some of the steps required to assess the patient with a complex limb deformity.
