Jeff McFall took a fall. Off a motorcycle at highway speeds. From the
knee down, his right leg was crushed. His tibia bone was now in 28
little pieces. It was no stretch of the imagination to think he may lose
the leg. But doctors at Grant were determined not to let that happen.
Like every patient at the Bone & Joint Center at Grant Medical
Center, Jeff received very specialized care. In his case, from a team of
experts in the field of limb reconstruction. They carefully rebuilt
Jeff’s shattered tibia and performed a “free flap” procedure to repair
the damaged muscle.
Today, Jeff is back on his feet. And back to his construction business,
as this man with the rebuilt leg is now helping rebuild
hurricane-damaged homes in New Orleans.
