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.

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 Lower Extremity Prosthesis 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.
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.
