The article discusses some aspects related to such a crippling operation as amputation of a limb in children. The main groups of children’s pathologies of the extremities that serve as indications for the truncation of a limb or part of it for vital indications and in terms of improving the appearance are identified. An important aspect is the preliminary surgical preparation for prosthetics, which involves performing re-amputations of the limb stump. Some features of the technique of amputations of the limb in children based on the Russian school of orthopedic surgeons are described. When performing amputations in children, it is important to remember not only about the features of the child’s growth, but also the subsequent functional prosthetics.
