you suffered from an amputation of a leg, most likely an above knee amputation, and this has meant a dramatic change of your life and lifestyle. This website illuminates a relatively new method available for rehabilitation after amputation known as the Endo-Exo-Femur-Prosthesis n. Grundei ®.
This new technique goes back to well-established findings of tooth-implants. The main idea is a bone-anchored and skin penetrating implant that allows the attachment of an artificial knee-joint and lower leg prosthesis. It therefore essentially differs from the conventional socket-prosthesis and can provide remarkable advantages for a suitable patient. By now the procedure can also be performed for lower leg amputees and has therefore proved its value as an Endo-Exo-Tibia-Prosthesis as well.
The special method of the Endo-Exo-Prosthesis (EEP) has been developed in Lübeck, Germany, where the first implantation was done in 1999. In 2003 it has been established in the Sana Clinic in Lübeck where I am heading the Unit for Plastic, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery and have experience with over 100 ILP patients by now. The results are very encouraging. Meanwhile, the osseointegration technique is also performed in centers in the Netherlands and in Australia and we share our experiences in close connection with each other to get the best possible results and strive for excellence If you, one of your relatives or somebody you know would like to have more information about the EEP procedure I am very willing to give more advise in a one-to-one interview.
You can always make an appointment with my secretary, Doris Abel, for a consulting date during which I can advise you in detail.
Thank you very much for your interest,
