Osseointegration

Definition: The formation of a direct interface between an implant and bone, without intervening soft tissue.

The team at Kawartha Prosthetics & Orthotics have been researching and exploring the option of Osseointegration as an alternative to traditional prosthetic limbs.

There are a number of differences between a traditional prosthetic limb, and an osseointegrated artificial limb. The literature below outlines the procedure itself, as well as the roles and responsibilities of the client and clinical team, respectively: Osseo in Canada
