It depends on the sort of prosthetic, what sort of amputation, and the material that the prosthetic is made of. This would be a good question for your doctor.
Transradial and transtibial prostheses typically cost between US $6,000 and $8,000. Transfemoral and transhumeral prosthetics cost approximately twice as much with a range of $10,000 to $15,000 and can sometimes reach costs of $35,000. The cost of an artificial limb does recur because artificial limbs are usually replaced every 3-4 years due to wear and tear. In addition, if the artificial limb has fit issues, the limb must be replaced within several months. The i-Limb hand, manufactured by Touch Bionics of Scotland, went on sale on 18 July 2007 in Britain for £8,500 (U.S. $17,454)
