Conditions Treated by the Limb Preservation and Reconstruction Program

Whatever the nature of your child’s limb difference or deformity, there is an expert at Children’s Hospital with experience treating their specific problem. The Limb Preservation and Reconstruction Program cares for children with a wide variety of conditions that affect their arms and legs, from congenital limb defects and missing limbs to limb length discrepancy or acquired limb deformities caused by trauma or tumors.

We also work closely with other subspecialty programs at CHOP that focus on specific needs related to tumors, cerebral palsy, trauma, and foot, ankle, hand and hip disorders.

Some of the conditions we treat include:
