Summary

In this procedure, the provider surgically separates the tibia and fibula bones of the lower leg from the femur, the thigh bone. The advantage of this procedure to remove the lower leg is that the provider cuts no bones, which allows the patient to bear some weight on the end of the femur or thigh.
