What is Amputation?

Amputation is the removal of a body extremity due to trauma, prolonged constriction, or surgery. As a surgical measure, it is applied to control pain or disease in the affected limb, such as malignancy and gangrene. In some cases, it is carried out as a preventative surgery. A special case is that of congenital amputation, a congenital disorder where fetal limbs have been cut off by constrictive bands.

South African Paralympic sprinter Ntando Mahlangu got his first prosthetic blades at the age of 10, after growing up using a wheelchair. He hopes to inspire the next generation of bilateral above-knee amputee children to dream big and work hard to attain their goals in school and sport.

Ntando Mahlangu

Born with fibular hemi-melia; a congenital condition that affected both his legs from the knee down; Ntando Mahlangu spent a good portion of his young life in a wheelchair.

In 2012, the year of the London Paralympics, a decision was made to amputate both Ntando’s legs through the knee.
