"Some years after my leg was amputated in 2008, I began to suffer with severe pain and pressure on my residual limb which prevented me from getting on with my life and travel. It was discovered that I had a complex issue and I was recommended to go for another operation to resolve the issues I was experiencing. No matter what I did, I could not get my leg to heal properly and this was preventing me from wearing my prosthesis. As a last attempt to resolve the issue, I was referred to Abdo Haidar."
The turning point
"After my consultation with Abdo, he immediately understood the complexities of the amputation and created a solution that did not involve more surgery. A new socket was made around the complex structure of my residual limb and the leg healed completely within 4 weeks. After so much pain and suffering, I felt almost back to normal.
Now thanks to Abdo’s efficient, accurate and responsive treatment I’ve returned with confidence to my regular travels to various destinations, including the USA, India and Africa."
