3-Year-Old Girl Born With Her Legs Bent Backward Is Now Home and Walking
Victoria Komada, 3, was born with bilateral tibial hemimelia, a birth defect that left her missing bones and some of her toes. Her mother was told she might have to undergo a double amputation, but hoped for a better way. Then she found a doctor at the Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute in Florida who said he could help. After raising money for the more than $200,000 surgery, Victoria is now home in England and walking.
