We give our
For patients with a leg amputation who experience problems wearing a socket prosthesis, there is now a method to anchor the prosthesis to the body. Through the skin, the surgeon can insert an orthopaedic implant directly into the bone of the stump. The artificial bone can be connected to this implant using a click system. This technique is called osseointegration, and the prosthesis is therefore called click prosthesis. Doctors use the term osseointegration prosthesis or bone-anchoring prosthesis. The skin opening through which the implant protrudes is called a stoma.
