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)
- 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.
