Margaret S. Roubaud, MD

Assistant Professor, Department of Plastic Surgery, Division of Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX

Until recently, the surgical techniques of amputation have not changed significantly since the Civil War era. Dr. Roubaud will review MD Anderson’s multidisciplinary approach and standard of care to manage post-amputation neuroma and phantom limb pain. Dr. Roubaud will discuss how the management of nerves with targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) at the time of amputation improves pain outcomes and is becoming a new standard of care.
