Prosthetic Leg Types Options We Provide in Las Cruces, NM

There are different types of lower limb prosthetic options available depending on levels of amputation. Explore our lower limb prosthetics below.

Above-the-Knee Prosthetics

Above-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

Below-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. 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

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 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 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 right prosthetic components 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 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 the device and services you require. For a new leg-amputee prosthesis or maintenance to an existing one, your insurance company is billed.

  • 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 making sure your prosthetic leg is comfortable for you! During this fitting appointment, 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. No matter whether it's a new prosthetic socket or one you already use, we are always geared up to assist you with software updates and calibration.

  • Progress Tracking and Follow-Up

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

  • What does the prosthetic leg cost?

    A basic leg prosthetic is typically less than $10,000, 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 limb 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 can still drive a car. Others may require the use of 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. Bear in mind that first-time amputees are fitted with temporary prosthetics for 3-12 months before selecting definitive solutions that suit their conditions and lifestyles.
