Hello Nazila, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Amputation performed because of certain medical indications is not an inherited disease. Diseases that are passed on from parents to children are diseases that are genetic in nature, such as thalassemia, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, and many other types of genetic diseases.
Although defects due to amputation are not inherited, if the man has certain genetic diseases that increase the risk of bone cancer (for example due to Li-Fraumeni syndrome, multiple osteochondroma syndrome), the gene can be passed on to the child and can increase the child's risk. suffered from a bone tumor too. However, most bone tumors are not caused by genetic diseases, so there is very little chance that the bone tumor will be passed on to the child.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
