This unusual term is used for when surgery is used to 'save' a leg or arm.
It is most commonly used in relation to tumour surgery, where Mr Jeys became familiar with the surgical techniques
However, the techniques and technology can now be used to 'save' a leg where a knee or hip replacement has failed so badly that amputation is a real possibility.
Problems such as severe bone loss or infection are the most common problems which lead to this situation.
Mr Jeys has built up a national reputation for attempting to reconstruct the limb following such cases. He lectures around the world on this subject and gets referrals on a national basis.
