osseointegration prostheses

Osseointegration refers to the attachment of an external prosthesis directly to an implant on the remaining bone of the residual limb. A metal implant extends through the skin out of the residual limb. We can use this for the secure attachment (suspension) of prosthetic fingers, toes, ears, nose prostheses and transfemoral (above knee) prosthesis. A specialised orthopaedic surgeon performs the surgery and places the implant after which the relevant prosthesis is designed and manufactured.
