Limb Deformity

Limb Deformity
Card copy
Limb deformities can be present from birth; develop over time; or result from fracture, infection, arthritis or tumor. Some limb deformities can be life-altering and others may be more of a cosmetic concern. Because deformities can also affect joint alignment, a deformity left untreated may result in musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis or back pain, and potentially prevent patients from participating in activities they enjoy.
