Alexa was born with Bilateral Tibial Hemimelia. We sought out treatment in Chicago, Dallas, as well as at The Paley Institute. Dr. Paley was the only one of the three that recommended reconstruction versus bilateral amputation. Alexa presents two different types of Tibial Hemimelia. She has Paley type 1A in her left leg, and Paley type 2A in her right leg. Alexa has undergone 6 surgeries so far (we began treatment in December 2019) to correct not only these deformities but also the additional deformities she was born within her legs and foot.
Dr. Paley and his entire team are absolutely incredible. We are so blessed to have found them, and trust each and every single one of them to have Alexa up on her own two feet and walking Independently one day!! We are forever grateful for the care Alexa has received and continues to receive here. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Paley Institute!!!! You truly do save limbs and change lives!!!
