Custom Lower Limb

What Is a Lower Leg Prosthesis?

Simply put: A lower leg prosthesis is a device used to replace all or part of a person's lower leg.

According to the National Institute of Health, about 150,000 patients undergo lower extremity amputations in the United States due to diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, and trauma.

Types of lower leg amputations include transtibial (at the knee), symes (ankle), transfemoral (above the knee), knee disarticulation (middle of thigh), and hip disarticulation (at the hip joint).

For amputees, limb restoration options such as lower extremity prosthetics can help you navigate a new normal and empower you to live life to the fullest. These include partial or entire artificial replacement of a lower limb such as your hip, thigh, knee, ankle, and foot.

Our team at PrimeCare provides lower-limb prosthetics in Las Cruces and surrounding areas that allow you to participate in daily activities without daunting limitations. We're passionate about fitting you with a comfortable, well-fitting prosthetic leg that suits your function and aesthetic needs.

Types of Lower Extremity Prosthetics We Provide in New Mexico

Different types of lower limb prosthetic options are available depending on amputation levels. Explore our prosthetic leg types below.

Above-the-Knee Prosthetics

Above-the-Knee (Transfemoral) Prosthetics

Transfemoral prosthetics are custom-made artificial limbs designed for individuals who have lost a limb above the knee. Transfemoral prosthesis enables users to regain mobility and perform everyday activities with ease and comfort.

Knee Disarticulation

Knee Disarticulation Prosthetics

A specialized prosthetic leg for individuals who have had an amputation at or above the knee joint. These prosthetics mimic the movement of the remaining limb, allowing the wearer to walk, stand, and balance more effectively than other prostheses.

Below-the-Knee Prosthetics

Below-the-Knee Prosthetics

Transtibial prosthetics are designed for those with a leg amputated below the knee. This prosthetic comes complete with a socket to fit the patient's residual limb and provides the user with a foot for balance.

Below-the-Knee Prosthetics

Symes & Ankle Disarticulation Prosthetics

Symes prosthetics replace a foot and ankle, while ankle disarticulation prosthetics replace the leg from below the knee. They typically consist of a prosthetic socket, a foot/ankle mechanism, and a suspension system.

Hip Prosthetics

Hip Disarticulation Prosthetics (Hemipelvectomy)

If removing the hip joint or pelvis is required, an artificial hip joint is placed on a fabricated socket made of rigid yet flexible resins. In addition, the patient will need knee and ankle/foot extremities to optimize walking.

Foot, Partial Foot & Fingers Prosthetics

Foot & Partial Foot Prosthetics

Partial foot prostheses and finger & toes prosthetics replace lost sections of the foot and missing digits. Many functional and aesthetic designs with and without moving parts are available.

Our Lower Extremity Prosthesis Process

If you're considering surgical amputation for a leg prosthesis, we encourage you to meet with our prosthetists to learn more about your lower leg prosthetic design options. Here's what you can expect when you work with our team.
Our Process
  • Free Consultation

    The first step to getting a prosthesis for a leg amputation is to schedule an initial consultation. This allows us to ensure we have the prosthetic components you'll need for your physical rehabilitation process.

  • First Appointment and Measurements

    If the initial consultation goes well, we will schedule your first appointment to learn more about your medical history and discuss your limb restoration goals. During this time, we'll take measurements to fabricate your device.

  • Authorization

    Administrative steps: We'll verify your insurance coverage and work with your doctor to create a prescription based on your required device and services. Your insurance company is billed for a new leg-amputee prosthesis or maintenance to an existing one.

  • Prosthetics Fabrication

    Next comes the process of making custom lower limb prosthetics. We use the measurements from your previous appointment to order prosthetic components. Once they arrive, it takes 2-3 days for our team to construct your prosthetic.

  • Fit, Delivery & Socket Fabrication

    Nothing is more important to us than ensuring your lower limb prosthesis is comfortable for you! During the adjustment and fitting of a prosthetic leg, your prosthetist will also assemble your direct socket system.We are also ready to help you with your existing socket. Poorly fitted sockets are common. Whether it's a new prosthetic socket or one you already use, we are always geared to assist you with software updates and calibration.

  • Progress Tracking and Follow-Up

    One of the most essential aspects of lower extremity prosthetics is progress tracking and follow-ups. These additional appointments allow us to adjust the fit of your prosthetic components at regular intervals and address any functionality issues.

  • How long does a prosthetic leg last?

    How often you'll need to replace your lower limb prosthetic differs for everyone. Many patients receive a new leg every 3-5 years.

  • Can you drive with prosthetic legs?

    Yes! Those with all levels of limb loss can still drive a car. Others may require special vehicle equipment to assist them with the process.

  • How long does it take to get a prosthetic leg?

    Our prosthetic socket fabrication takes 2 hours, meaning you'll receive your socket and prosthetics on the same day. Remember that first-time amputees are fitted with temporary prosthetics for 3-12 months before selecting definitive solutions that suit their conditions and lifestyles.

  • Does Medicare cover prosthetic legs?

    Yes, Medicare covers prosthetic legs under Medicare Part B. Your doctor must determine that a prosthetic leg is medically necessary, and you must have a prescription from your doctor for it. Coverage is subject to Medicare's rules, guidelines, and applicable local coverage determinations.

  • Can you wear a prosthetic leg all day?

However, if you are experiencing discomfort or soreness, consult your prosthetist to ensure your prosthetic is adjusted correctly.
