Case Presentation

Alissa is 8 years old and dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She was playing outside with her sister and several friends when she ran past a pair of garbage cans at the curb, just as a truck was rolling to a stop. The truck's right front tire ran over her right foot, immediately severing it. Alissa is a very keen dancer and couldn't understand why doctors simply couldn't re-attach her foot so she could dance again.  She underwent a transtibial amputation.
