Prosthesis

(En español: Prótesis)

Say: pros-thee-sus

A prosthesis is a fake body part. When someone loses an arm or a leg, or when a person is born without an arm or leg or some other part of the body, he may be able to get a prosthesis, a man-made part that replaces what's missing. Other kinds of prostheses include artificial heart valves and false teeth.
