Injured in an explosion, this young man sustained fractures to the tibia and foot that nearly took off his leg. He was left with skin damage, missing toes, and a tibia nonunion despite excellent medical care in his country.
A novel approach was crafted to treat all aspects of his injury. This included free tissue transfer by our world class plastic surgeon, rebuilding of the missing metatarsal bones, gradual repositioning of the displaced calcaneus (heel) bone, and treatment of the tibia nonunion.
Once healed, he was finally able to walk again and was ready to rebuild his life.
