Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy - Baltimore

The surgeons at The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy work with bone banks when bone and cartilage are needed for transplants.

What is a Bone Bank?

A bone bank harvests bone and tissue from a cadaver to provide to surgeons who perform transplants. Bone banks perform rigorous infection control testing on all the grafts prior to releasing for transplantation. If the grafts do not pass infection control standards, the graft will not be released to the surgeon.
