This Life-Changing Surgery Allows Prosthetic Limbs To Attach Easily

The Osseointegration surgery inserts a titanium metal implant into the bone of the patient’s stump to easily attach prosthetic limbs.

After the implantation, the wound is closed, and a small skin incision is made for a connecting adapter to plug in an artificial limb to the human skeleton.



Osseointegrated prosthesis is much more stable, and allows for a much-improved walking and joint movement, just like the patient’s own body part.

The treatment is promoted by the ‘Amputee Osseointegration Foundation Europe’ to help people understand the procedure better.
