Is amputation the only way to stop gang green?

    To treat gangrene, dead tissue must be removed, often through surgery, in order to prevent infection. If caught early and treated prompted, one can fully recover from gangrene without the need for amputation. But if the afflicted area has spread extensively, then amputation may be inevitable.

    Not necessarily. If the person is quick enough to get the appropriate medical attention they need, saving themselves from gangrene may be possible through treatments and surgery (the doctor would probably remove the infected tissues which can help gangrene from spreading to other areas). In addition, people diagnosed with dry gangrene have a better prognosis.
