Can osteosarcoma be cured without amputation?
The treatment of highly malignant osteosarcoma is still a challenge to medical science. An ideal situation in the treatment of osteosarcoma is when the tumor can be eradicated without an amputation, bone/soft tissue loss with near normal function.
What is the goal of shoulder resection arthroplasty?
The goal of shoulder resection arthroplasty is to restore function to an impaired shoulder, with its required motion range, stability, strength, and smoothness.
How long is the recovery period for thumb joint arthroplasty?
Depending on the type of surgical procedure used, full recovery from a thumb joint arthroplasty operation can take a number of months.
What is recovery time for basal joint arthroplasty?
Full recovery of normal activities may require up to 6 months. Most studies report high patient satisfaction rates and good short- and long-term pain relief after basal joint arthroplasty (1,2).
What type of surgery is arthroplasty?
