Without the appropriate surgery, Kwame was at risk of losing his foot, and severely affecting his health and his future.
In a series of operations at the Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit, Kwame’s ankle was repaired. This involved removing the dead tissue and preparing a flap of skin and tissue from his leg to hinge down and cover the exposed injury. Skin grafts were then applied to all the raw surfaces.
A full recovery took place.
