Types of Leg Prosthetics Options We Provide

There are different types of lower limb prosthetics depending on where the amputation occurred. We’ve outlined the types of prosthetics that we offer below.

Above-the-Knee Prosthetics

Above-the-Knee Prosthetics

In the case that you need an above-the-knee (transfemoral) prosthetic, your prosthesis will consist of different modular components including a prosthetic foot, a knee, and the remaining connecting elements.

Knee Disarticulation

Some patients need knee disarticulation as a result of diabetes, trauma, or peripheral vascular disease. This type of procedure leaves the femur and patella untouch and uses a non-traumatic surgical technique.

Below-the-Knee Prosthetics

Some socket types for leg prosthetics are solely for below the knee. If you had a transtibial amputation, you might need a lower leg prosthetic. This option is ideal for those who still have an intact knee joint and consists of a custom-made socket, a pylon, a foot, and some sort of suspension system.

Symes Prosthetics

Ankle disarticulation is also known as Symes. During this procedure, the ankle is removed and the heel pad is moved to the distal tibia to occasionally bear weight when needed.

Hip Prosthetics

Those who undergo hip disarticulation may need a hemipelvectomy prosthesis. In the case that removing the hip joint or the pelvis is required, there is an artificial hip joint 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

If you need an amputation in the foot, hand, or fingers region, you can use a custom silicone prosthesis. Patients like custom silicone prosthesis as it is comfortable and adapts to the shape of your foot or hand.

Our Process

If you’re considering surgical amputation, we encourage you to meet with our prosthetists to learn more about your options. Here’s what you can expect when you work with our team.
Our Process
  • Free Consultation

    The first step in getting a prosthetic leg is to schedule an initial consultation. This allows us to ensure we have the right products that you’ll need for your physical rehabilitation process.

  • First Appointment and Measurements

    If the initial consultation goes well, we will then schedule your first appointment where we will learn more about your medical history and discuss your 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 the device and services that you require. For a new prosthesis or maintenance to an existing prosthesis, your insurance company is billed.

  • Prosthetics Fabrication

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

  • Fit, Delivery & Socket Fabrication

    Nothing is more important to us than making sure that your prosthetic is comfortable for you! During this fitting appointment, your prosthetist will also assemble your direct socket system.

  • Progress Tracking and Follow Up

    One of the most important steps in leg prosthetics is progress tracking and follow-up. These additional appointments allow us to make adjustments to the fit of your prosthesis at regular intervals and address any issues about functionality.

Lower Limb Prosthetics for First-Time Amputees

FAQ

  • What is the cost of a prosthetic leg?

    The prosthetics leg price is typically less than $10,000 for a basic leg while computerized legs can cost $70,000 or more. Keep in mind that insurance is also factored in, making the prices more affordable for many patients.

  • How often does a prosthetic leg need to be replaced?

    How often you’ll need to replace your lower leg prosthetic is different for every person. Many patients receive a new leg every 3-5 years.

  • Can you drive with prosthetic legs?

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