Amputation is a life altering decision that parent's of thousands of children who are either born with or develop a limb length discrepancy are faced with every year. Recently it was the only medical option they are given to have a "normal" life. Doctors at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland are giving those parents hope with a new option.
Anne Beaumont, currently 13 years old, was born with congenital femoral deficiency or C-F-D, a condition that results in severe limb length discrepancies.
In this LifePOD, you learn how the limb lengthening team led by Dr. Dror Paley, the medical director of the International Center for Limb Lengthening at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore was able to offer Anne and her family an alternative to amputation.
