Written by CU Anschutz News on January 1, 2020

Dr. Jason Stoneback, Chief of Orthopedic Trauma and Fracture Surgery at the Anschutz Medical Campus, is driven to push the limits of what’s possible. He’s now enabling amputees to live a higher quality of life using innovative limb restoration techniques. Osseointegration integrates a bone-anchored prosthesis into an amputee’s skeleton. Unlike a traditional socket prosthetic, it allows amputees to feel vibrations and sense pressure through the prosthesis, which is essential for activities like driving. It also allows patients to function at a higher degree and with far less discomfort or pain. Discover how Dr. Stoneback is radically changing what’s possible for limb restoration.
