PROSTHETICS

Prosthetics is the design, fabrication and fitting of custom-made artificial limbs for patients who have lost limbs as a result of traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, diabetes, cancer or congenital disorders. These devices will restore, as completely as possible, the function and appearance of a full or partial missing limb. Because of vast differences in each patient’s anatomy, the fabrication of a prosthetic device is necessarily an intricate, custom procedure requiring a high degree of skill and sophisticated technology. The preliminary, or temporary prosthesis is followed by a definitive prosthesis as soon as the residual limb is stable.


ENJOY AN ACTIVE LIFE

Losing a limb does not mean you need to give up your dreams for an active lifestyle. We have years of experience in helping amputees achieve and exceed their goals for physical activity, from walking comfortably to participating in a very active lifestyle.  Our clients include active amputees of all ages, including high-level athletes. We work individually with all of our clients to help them reach their lifestyle goals.

The design of the prosthesis is determined by the patient's physical changes, activity level, and functional needs.  Amputees generally require follow up prosthetic care for the remainder of their lives.  Children, due to rapid growth rates and high activity levels, along with extremely active adults need new prostheses on a more frequent basis.  Prosthetic adjustments, repairs, realignment, and component upgrading are also aspects of ongoing treatment.

Depending upon their complexity, prostheses represent a substantial investment of the health care dollar. Yet, studies have shown that, thanks to advanced designs and modern materials, those who require prostheses are most likely fully and successfully rehabilitated compared with all segments of the physically challenged population. Because of the improved function it allows, an appropriate prosthesis is an expenditure that more than pays for itself.
