Before & After

This is the way Karsen's leg looked before the expanders. You can see the tip of his bone (The white part). The Skin and bone are attached and would not allow any movement which caused blisters and pain when he wore his Transformer leg.

This is the front side.

This is his leg with the Expanders stretching the skin around it so that we could have it reconstructed by taking the skin graft off completely.

This is the results of his long awaited reconstructive surgery. They shortened both bones and took off the skin graft. It looks and feels so much better.

Front side again. Crazy how much they took off but Thankfully it is still at a great length for his New Leg!!

We are leaving Sunday July 25th to take Karsen to see Dr. Mike Joyce from Advanced Prosthetics in Manhasset, NY to get him a new leg that will enhance his performance. Through many blessing and miracles (and the love and support of so many) we are looking forward to him walking again and riding his bike.

Much Love!!
