leg-amputation

A medical condition causing lack of blood circulation eventually leads to dead tissues in the leg (for want of oxygen and nutrients). This consequentially results in infection and gangrene. Gangrene can be fatal as the infection can spread throughout the body. This could lead to a surgeon deciding on amputation as the last resort. The main sites of amputation:
  1. Through the hip
  2. Through the thigh
  3. Through the knee
  4. Just below the knee
