For what it is worth, I would copy what Fernando Navarro has


Explanation:
to say about "prosthetic= en español el adjetivo "prostético" significa relativo a la prótesis gramatical y, en el lenguaje químico, designa el grupo no proteico que forma parte de proteínas complejas o enzimas (el grupo prostético de la hemoglobina, por ejemplo, se llama hemo). En inglés. "prosthetic" se utiliza además, y preferentemente, en el sentido de "protésico" (relativo a la prótesis o reparación artificial de un órgano); "paraprosthetic fistula= fistula paraprotésica" "prosthetic dentistry= odontología protésica" "prosthetic heart valve= prótesis valvular...

In this case, I think, it refers to the "Departamento de Protética" in your particular case.

Saludos. Maria ;o)
