Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the Tibia

A deformed and/or non-healing tibia bone, often associated with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).

My Approach

Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the tibia (CPT) is a rare disorder in which a child is born with a specific bowing of the tibia (anterolateral) and/or a break of the tibia at birth. I firmly believe that every limb with this disorder can be treated, healed and not re-fracture by utilizing a Cross Union Technique. As a result, this condition should never undergo amputation. During the over twenty years I have been in practice, I have seen this condition evolve from one with a nearly 30-40% amputation rate to now where amputation should be a never occurrence.
