Osseointegration of the limb is a surgical procedure used for the permanent placement of artificial limbs connected to the human skeleton. A metal implant is inserted into the amputated extremity bone. The connector passes through the skin and attaches to the prosthesis.
Dr. Stoneback believes that rehabilitation plays an essential role in osseointegration success. You will meet with our Physical Medicine and Rehab team at your initial consult and again preoperatively. Rehabilitation is individualized and you can expect three weeks of physical therapy with our team following osseointegration. Once home, we will work with your local physical therapist to ensure post-operative plans are executed.
