Caption: Surgery to remove a tumour in the pelvis. Image 2 of 10. Surgeons applying a protective film to the leg to prevent infection before performing surgery to remove a tumour, or abnormal growth, in the pelvis. A new femoral head (the "ball" part of the ball and socket joint of the hip) from a donor will be shaped to fill the space left in the pelvis after the removal of the tumour. For a sequence of images showing this surgical procedure, see M551/427-M551/436.
