Below-knee amputation results in the loss of the lower limb between the ankle and the knee, also known as a transtibial amputation. When undergoing this level of amputation, it’s important to know your options and to remember that it’s possible to return to an independent lifestyle.
Also known as an above-knee amputation, a transfemoral amputation is the loss of the lower limb between the knee and the hip. We ensure that your prosthesis will fit perfectly by creating a custom socket made for your limb and choosing the most appropriate components for your lifestyle and needs.
A Syme’s amputation is an ankle disarticulation or a through the ankle amputation. This procedure is most commonly caused by complications from diabetes resulting in the need to amputate.
Hip Disarticulation and Hemipelvectomy
A hip disarticulation is the loss of the entire limb at the hip level. An individual who has experienced this level of limb loss faces the most challenging and complex road to successful prosthetic use. Although there are many challenges resulting from this type of limb loss, with the right support, clinical expertise, and prosthetic technology, it is possible to lead an independent life.
An above-elbow amputation, also known as a transhumeral amputation, is the loss of the upper extremity between the elbow and the shoulder. This is often the result of trauma, disease, or infection.
Below elbow amputation is the loss of the upper extremity between the wrist and the elbow, commonly known as a transradial amputation. About 70 percent of the upper limb amputations in the United States occur below the elbow.
