Team of experts worked with first U.S. osseointegration patient

AOPA In Advance SmartBrief | Oct 14, 2014

Elizabeth Bailey-Smith, whose leg was amputated as the result of cancer, was the first person in the U.S. to have an osseointegration procedure that implants a metal stem into the bone of the residual limb to connect to the prosthesis. Throughout the process, Bailey-Smith worked with AmPro Orthotics and Prosthetics, Dr. Ronald Hillock, Australia-based Signature Orthopedics, and physical therapist Ed Dolegowski. Ten months after the surgery, she has no limp and says the feeling she gets when her foot touches the floor is the same as when she had her own limb. O&P Almanac (Adobe Flash required) (10/2014)
