Info for all new mommies

Hallo everyone. I really just wanted to find out if anyone could give me information on Extension Prosthesis (no amputation) as my daughter, Olivia, is now 9 months old and will be having a super hip and knee operation done by Dr Paley next year. He did however predict that she would require at least 3 lenghtening surgeries and i am strongly looking into alternative options in order to avoid all the pain for her.

I would appreciate all your comments

Hi Amanda!

After my daughter had the super hip/knne/ankle surgery, she was fitted with a foot-in-foot prosthesis. It looked like a boot with a prosthetic foot attached to the bottom of it. I was pretty pleased with this prosthesis. My daughter was able to walk, run, jump, dance, etc. while wearing it.


We went with the extension prosthesis. No surgeries, no drugs, no pain, etc.. We've gone through several different versions and we've been very happy with the results. If you look at my post history you can see some of the results as well as movies, images, etc. If you need more details please let me know.
