Prosthetics

Our clinicians are experienced in creating prosthetic devices that range from a partial hand or foot, to those requiring prostheses as a result of total shoulder or hip disarticulation, as well as upper and lower extremity bi-lateral amputations.

Prosthetics is where science and art truly converge

Science

Every prosthesis that we create is backed by an impressive array of science and technology, with new discoveries and techniques coming on line on a regular basis. Our practitioners are required by their certifying body and by RHS to educate themselves on new scientific developments and components for the benefit of our patients.

We are committed to designs that make amputees more functional as well as those that make the process go more smoothly and efficiently. Our CAD/CAM system is a perfect example. In many cases, this system allows the prosthetist to make a prosthetic socket from several measurements without the patient having to be cast. It assists the practitioner in achieving an intimately fitting socket so that the amputee feels more secure.

Empathy

When our practitioners evaluate and consult with an amputee, they want to be a part of helping you to meet your personal dreams and goals. To us, prosthetics is not just “making legs” but is an art form based on restoring your maximum lifestyle and mobility. The prosthetist that sees you at your appointments will always be directly involved in overseeing the fabrication of your device.
