Replacement quad tendon

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My daughter is 4 years old.  2 months ago, my husband tragically backed over her with the lawn mower and she suffered severe damage to her right leg.  The biggest longterm problem is the loss of her quad tendon.  It's not torn, it is gone.  Does anyone know anywhere we can go to get a cadaver as a replacement?  Or any other suggestions.  Thanks.

Wow I'm sorry to hear that!
Unfortunately I don't think cadaver is an option here, she's too young and will grow a lot!
You need to contact a specialist... I think that maybe you could use part of her left tendon and hope it will regenerate well enough to keep growing with her!
Best of luck!

Also look up pediatric orthopedic surgeons in your area, and contact them directly
