Innovative Approach to Prosthetics on Display in Video

Some of the innovative work being done by Cedars-Sinai is on display in a video featuring Daniel C. Allison, MD, assistant professor of Surgery, whose use of a bone-anchored prosthetic dramatically improved the quality of life for patient Chris Rowles.

Rowles, a 27-year police officer, lost his left leg above the knee after a work-related injury. Traditional suction-socket prosthetics proved so uncomfortable and ineffective for Rowles that he stopped wearing them for a time. At Cedars-Sinai, the first institution in Southern California to apply the technique of anchoring the prosthetic to the bone, Rowles regained both his prosthetic leg and his confidence.

"Dr. Allison," Rowles says in the video, "he's given me back my mojo."
