  • Megaprosthesis/ Endoprosthesis
  • Expandible Megaprosthesis/ Endoprosthesis in children (Invasive/ Non-Invasive)
  • Massive Bone Allograft (Osteoarticular, Intercalary reconstruction)
  • Autograft (Iliac crest, Vascularized/ Non-Vascularized Fibula)
  • Extra-corporeal Radiation & Reimplantation (ECRT- Tumor Autograft)
  • Arthrodesis with Massive Bone Allograft/Autograft
  • Allograft Prosthesis Composite (APC)
  • Intercalary segmental prosthesis
  • Limb reconstruction with Ilizarov, LRS
