Trauma and Reconstruction


Traumatic Limb Salvage

Dr. Shannon brought the Ilizarov bone transport technique to Nebraska from his experience at Shock Trauma in Baltimore, MD and Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  This technique utilizes an external ring fixator to slowly transport a segment of bone to replace an area of bone loss. This technique has allowed Dr. Shannon to save extremities that may have otherwise faced possible amputation.
