It can be distressing and scary to learn that you could lose your arm or leg because of cancer, trauma, infection or a congenital condition. You may not know where to turn, or that advances in limb-sparing surgery might enable you to keep your limb.

Nationally recognized experts at the Rush Center for Limb Preservation — the first center of its kind in the Midwest — are here to help you.

These specialists are dedicated to saving limbs that are at risk for amputation whenever possible. They work together to coordinate every aspect of care, from surgery through rehabilitation. And they use all of the latest reconstructive techniques and technology, some of which they helped to develop, including self-lengthening implants that can grow as a child grows.

Nationally recognized for excellence

Rush University Medical Center is ranked No. 7 in the nation for orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report, with internationally respected orthopedic specialists whose research discoveries and innovative treatment approaches are helping patients at Rush — and around the globe.
