Osseo Integration in Canada
Our prosthetist, Tony van der Waarde, spent two weeks at Macquaire University Hospital (MUH) in Sydney, Australia, in 2016, attending implants surgeries and practicing with several “resident” amputees to service and adjust components between the bone implant and the prosthesis. The observations and technical knowledge gained has given him significant expertise in Osseo Integration prosthesis technology.
We are currently serving 3 Osseo-Integration amputees, who had their implant surgeries done in Sydney, Australia. At the same time, we are consulting with professionals and amputees worldwide to add to our data base to help solve unique prosthetic challenges.
Another 9 B.C. resident amputees are currently awaiting funding approval for Osseo-Integration surgery and Rehab.
