What is Rotationplasty?

YouTube/Vimeo Video: 

Gabby is awesome.  A young patient with cancer in the knee, Gabby received a Rotationplasty. 

What exactly is that? Actually, it is pretty amazing.

Removing the knee from her right leg, her doctors then removed and reattached her foot and lower leg to her upper thigh… only backwards.

Why backwards? So, the ankle can act as the knee joint!

The best part? Thanks to this amazing procedure and prosthesis, Gabby participates in all of her favorite activities including dancing, rollerblading and even rock climbing!
