15-year-old Gabi Shull had cancer. She had the opportunity to receive a revolutionary form of surgery called rotationplasty. In a Youtube video, Shull explains that after the affected knee was removed, “they took my lower leg and foot, twisted it 180 degrees backwards, and attached it to my thigh.” That's right when not in the prosthesis, her foot is actually pointing backwards. This is necessary so she can still use the nerves and muscles in her foot to point.

In this vivid painting by Christopher Fisher, you can see a surgeon using a falciform amputation knife. The curved blade was common in the early decades of the 19th century when surgeons preferred to cut through the skin and muscle before amputating the bone. To do this, the surgeon would take the falciform knife, hook it around the injured or infected limb, and cut in a circle to separate the flesh and muscle from the bone. Afterwards, he would use a saw to cut off the remaining appendage.
