Shortly after her diagnosis, she underwent a surgery called “Rotationplasty” where a portion of a limb is removed, while the remaining limb below the involved portion is rotated and reattached.

This procedure is used when a portion of an extremity is injured or involved with a disease, such as cancer. Typically, the ankle joint becomes the knee joint.
