With osseointegration surgery, we can improve your comfort and the functionality of your amputated limb. Why not enquire with us today?
Limb reconstructions are highly complex and are necessary when the blood vessels have been damaged beyond repair. Most amputees experience issues such as irritation to the skin, heat or sweating in the prosthetic socket, sores, inability to walk long distances and pain in the residual limb. These symptoms are usually caused by a poorly fitted prosthetic and can restrict the control an individual has of the limb, which is most common in the upper extremities. Osseointegration surgery is an advanced procedure that is regularly used in dental medicine and joint replacements, and can be used to create a durable, pain-free and easy to use prosthetic.
Osseointegration surgery is highly popular as it harnesses the bone’s ability to form a bond with metal. Not only will the individual have more control over the artificial limb, but they will find it easier to remove the prosthetic and keep the site clean. A titanium implant is inserted into the bone and emerges out of the skin to create a stoma-like opening. Once the individual has recovered from the surgery, they will then be able to use a prosthetic that they can attach and remove with ease.
