Limb to Limb by John Russo

Limb to Limb
by John Russo
1981 Pocket Books

From Vault of Horror

A ballerina loses a leg in a train accident.  Her rich father hires two unscrupulous doctors to steal and reattach another ballerina's leg, using methods they learned from Nazi concentration camps.

There are some moments of sleazy creepiness, such as rapist kidnappers and the doctors stealing fetuses from pregnant women, but most of it is at the made-for-TV-movie level of mild thriller.  Lots of padding, plenty of expanded character studies of people that don't especially matter to the story, and not a lot going on.
