Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Doctors decide to amputate the part if they feel that,if they don't remove it,that problem may turn fatal for the patient.So the amputation is done as a last resort to save the entire limb and to save the life.Palm of the patient must be in a situation where it can't be made alright surgically or conservatively and must be infected very badly.Thanks and good luck.

Did she have any bone infection in the area, because excision is done for such problem.
