SIGBAL founded at ISPO Mexico

SIGBAL (Special Interest Group Bone Anchored Limb) is a global interest group of medical professionals who treat people with arm or leg amputations with a bone anchored prosthesis to restore mobility and quality of life. The SIGBAL falls under ISPO International as parent organization (www.ispoint.org). We aim to make this innovative treatment available worldwide. These treatments pre-eminently require a multidisciplinary approach by surgeon, prosthetist, physiotherapist and rehabilitation doctor, in which the expert patient forms a permanent part of the treatment team. Within SIGBAL, dedicated professionals work together to share knowledge, collect data and help each other with surgical treatment, rehabilitation, follow-up and aftercare.
