  • Surgery explained

    Understand surgery - how to prepare, what happens and recovery.

  • Limb-sparing surgery

    It is usually possible to only remove the affected part of the bone. This is called limb-sparing surgery.

  • Amputation

    It is not always possible to use limb-sparing surgery, and occasionally the surgeons need to remove (amputate) a whole limb.
