Lower limb prostheses

Leg amputations can be divided into 2 broad categories:

Minor amputations: amputation of digits

  • Partial foot amputation (Chopart, Lisfranc, Ray)
  • Ankle disarticulation (Syme, Pyrogoff)

Major amputations:

  • Trans Tibial amputation
  • Knee disarticulation
  • Transfemoral amputation
  • Van-ness rotation/rotationplasty (foot being turned around and reattached to allow the ankle joint to be used as a knee)
  • Hip disarticulation
  • Hemipelvectomy/hindquarter amputation

Depending on the patient’s level of amputation, the appropriate prosthesis will be manufactured by one of our skilled prosthetists.
