FOCUSED ON YOUR NEEDS
Your evaluation is designed to discover the best prosthetic solutions for you. Your prosthetist will make clinical recommendations based on education and years of experience, but the focus is listening to your goals, expectations and unique challenges.
The visit begins with an examination of your residual limb and conversation about your lifestyle, limitations, goals and desires. If you’re already wearing a prosthesis we will examine it as well.
For the lower extremity patient we conduct a thorough outcome study and check the alignment of the body. For upper extremity patients we evaluate functional ability and upper body strength. Your evaluation could last 2 to 3 hours depending on your level of amputation and functional ability.
A WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT
Your initial visit will also be a chance to explore our state of the art facility. You will also get to know your professional care team which consists of your intake coordinator, financial advocate, prosthetist and assistants. It’s an important part of your first visit and helps you get comfortable with your surroundings. We also strive to bring patients together to share experience and advice
In most cases the prosthetic fitting process will consist of multiple appointments, where patients can spend several hours per day at our facility. We want you to feel comfortable, welcome and right at home from the very beginning. It’s all a part of our delivering unsurpassed service and care.
