Our aim is to enable amputees to move more freely without having to deal with unwanted pain and irritation, and to offer people an alternative if they have been involved in an accident that would usually result in limb removal. To enquire about our amputation surgery in Cambridge, give us a call today.
Osseointegration is well known in dental medicine and joint replacement surgeries. This is where the metal and bone are bonded together to ensure the secure attachment of an artificial tooth or joint. People with amputations regularly suffer with problems such as heat or sweating in the prosthetic socket, sores or skin irritation, inability to walk in open fields or woods, inability to walk quickly and pain in the residual limb. Due to these issues people struggle to control the artificial limb, especially if its in the upper extremities.
Our amputation surgery in Cambridge can improve the quality of a person life due to the nature of the surgery. Instead of the prosthetic being body-powered we harness the bone’s ability to form a strong bond with metal, enabling the individual to have more control over the artificial limb and to have a permanent anchorage to it. During the surgery, a titanium implant is inserted into the bone and penetrates the skin to create a stoma. This procedure makes the prosthetic more stable and allows for a lot more walking and exercise without irritation or pain.
