New technology, elective surgery and bionic limbs

New technology, elective surgery and bionic limbs | All Things Prosthetic, Prosthesis, Amputations | Scoop.it
‘Bionic’ prosthetic hands have featured prominently in the news again recently with the story of a Serbian man who has had a non-functioning hand amputated in order to have a ‘bionic’ hand fitted. He is the second man in Austria to undergo radical surgery for this reason, under the medical guidance of Viennese surgeon Dr Oskar Aszmann.



The procedure raises a number of issues not least to what extent radical surgery is justified to increase function. From toe to hand transplants to full hand transplants, controversy rages as to what is ‘right’. Indeed, Dr Aszmann, to his credit, held a symposium of leading surgeons to discuss the ethics of ‘elective amputation’.
