Patient Testimonial for Ilizarov External Fixation

Testimonial by Miss Anusha Perumala

Treatment for: Leg Fracture
Treated by: Dr. G. Kiran Kumar Reddy
Patient location: Nandyala

Limb lengthening surgery is performed to repair the broken bone as well as the ligaments, blood vessels, nerves, and soft tissues that surround and support it. The approach involved supporting the broken bone either externally or internally with the use of metal devices and giving it time to mend on its own.

The Ilizarov apparatus is an external device or external fixator (a series of metal rings joined by metal struts that surround the outside limb) used in orthopaedic surgery to stretch or reshape the limb bones to save a leg that would have been amputated otherwise due to open bone fractures or in situations of infected nonunions of bones that are not amenable to other procedures.

After surgery, recovery takes roughly 3 months. To hasten the healing process, the doctor will prescribe medications and vitamin supplements. After six months of full recovery, the Ilizarov fixator is removed.

Miss Anusha Perumala from Nandyala , underwent Ilizarov External Fixation for Limb Lengthening Surgery, under the supervision of Dr. G. Kiran Kumar Reddy, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad.
