When Crystal Padilla started having mobility issues in her right arm, she decided to see her doctor. Even though she wasn't experiencing any pain, she knew something wasn't quite right. After having her arm x-rayed, Crystal was told she had an aggressive tumor wrapped around the bone in her upper arm. She was then referred to Dr. Cynthia Kelly at Colorado Limb Consultants, and expert in treating extremity tumors.

Not only did Dr. Kelly save the arm Crystal was told she would probably need to have amputated, she also provided a level of care that went far beyond Crystal's expectations.
