An amputation of the leg is a devastating moment in anybody’s life and has a significant impact on all areas of an individual’s life. For this reason the desire for greater and more effortless mobility allowing for active participation in all areas of life is the Osseointegration Group of Australia’s top priority.
Prosthetic care plays a vital role in fulfilling these wishes and recovering the unrestricted ability to walk.
Throughout this site, we would like to introduce our response to your needs: a team approach from the initial meeting through to surgery and then quality after care with rehabilitation, physiotherapy and pain management that is best suited to you. This is done using the newest innovation in the field of prosthetics, the OGAP-OPL implant.
