Miss Tania Cubison MBBS, FRCS, FRCS(Plast)
Specialising in AMPUTATIONS AND STUMP REVISIONS
As a military plastic surgeon, Miss Cubison has considerable experience and expertise in the management of amputations, both primary amputation and also secondary problems associated with amputation stumps.
To get the best out of a prosthetic limb it is important that the patient has a comfortable, well fitted stump, without problems such as abnormal bone or neuroma (abnormal nerve growth formation). All these things can be very difficult to work around simply by changing the prosthetics and often a surgical approach is necessary.
Miss Cubison works as part of a multi-disciplinary team to manage problems with amputation stumps and works closely with pain management specialists, psychologists and prosthetic limb fitting specialists, as well as a variety of physiotherapists and occupational therapists to ensure that the patient can get back ‘on-legs’ as soon as practical.
This is a very specialised service and is highly tailored to the individual.
