Boy Gets Wish To Have Leg Amputated


Amit was born with a rare orthopedic condition, congenital pseudoarthrosis of tibia and fibula with osteofibrous dysplasia, which causes his right leg to continually fracture. At one point about 18 months ago, he would wake up twice weekly in excruciating pain with night terrors.   Amit is in constant pain with a rod in his leg, and can only walk with crutches or hop on one foot or crawl. He’s had multiple surgeries as doctors have tried, among other things.  But now, he got his wish – to get his leg amputated, so he could get a prosthetic leg and be as active as the other kids his age.  Watch this sweet video here.
