Supporting children with limb differences

Welcome to unLIMBited Foundation

The unLIMBited Foundation is committed to making world class limb saving treatment accessible to children from all over the world through direct temporary housing support for families and continued education for surgeons. By providing financial assistance to ease the burden of temporary housing, the unLIMBited Foundation is able to ensure access to life changing treatments for children and families with limited resources.

Through awareness campaigns and a strategic partnership with the world renowned Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute, located in West Palm Beach, Florida, we help provide families with a choice to undergo limb saving treatment instead of unnecessary amputation or living with a lifelong disability. Every dollar raised by the unLIMBitied Foundation’s Financial Aid program goes directly towards providing temporary housing for families with children undergoing treatment at Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute.

Housing support for our families is provided through partnerships with local hospital hospitality housing; Quantum House, Molly’s House, and Fisher House.

Our first contact with a family often comes in the form of a tearful phone call with a desperate parent, hoping to find a way to get the best care for their child. Many families are overwhelmed by the hurdle of traveling hundreds or thousands of miles for treatment and the cost of temporarily relocating, all while caring for their child. At the unLIMBited Foundation, we are proud to be able to reassure families that they have a safe and reliable place to call home for the duration of their child’s treatment.

Who We Serve

We serve a global community of families who have children born with congenital limb deficiencies or acquired limb deformities due to a traumatic event. Frequently, their local medical team lacks the experience and resources to save or reconstruct the child’s limb. This leads families from all over the world to seek out the expert care of Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute for their child’s rare and complex orthopedic medical care. Families from all 50 states and over 100 countries are traveling to a country, a state, or a city they may have never been to before. Their touching success stories are a testament to the unLIMBited Foundation’s mission to save limbs and change lives.

Committed to Changing Children's Lives Around the World

Limb deformity correction and limb lengthening are highly complex treatments. Meticulous surgical technique, vigilant follow up, and aggressive rehabilitation are required for a successful outcome. The results of lengthening and correction are dependent on the experience of the surgeon and their surrounding clinical staff. The team at Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute has experience performing lengthening and limb deformity correction surgeries for over twenty-five years. They are currently the most experienced limb lengthening surgeons in the world, having performed over 50,000 limb deformity correction and limb lengthening surgeries.
 
The team at Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute has developed over 100 new operative procedures for bone and soft-tissue reconstruction of congenital, developmental, and post-traumatic limb disorders. You can learn more about the team at Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute by going to www.paleyinstitute.org.

Limb Differences

“Our three-year old son, Jabari, was born with Congenital Short Right Femur. We were told by a local surgeon that amputation of his right leg and wearing a prosthetic was his only option.”

Amputation Alternative

There are thousands of children living in the United States and across the world who are born with a congenital limb defect or due to traumatic events stand to lose limbs. Many times the attending medical team’s experience and financial resources are deficients to save and correct the limb. With your donation, together with the generosity of others, we can provide opportunities for children to receive limb saving surgeries.
