How the Process Works
- Evaluation: Each one of our patients presents a unique situation requiring specialized care. Through a free evaluation with one of our prosthetists, together we can determine your particular needs, concerns, and goals. This allows us to provide you with a prosthesis that will compliment your lifestyle without being physically, or financially, burdensome. Continual technological advances in the industry afford us many options, and our goal is to utilize only those that benefit you specifically.
- Fabrication & Fitting: After you and the prosthetist decide on style and features that will best utilize and enhance your ability, fabrication begins. We use only the highest quality materials and componentry to ensure proper fit and maximum function. Typically one fitting is necessary to achieve an exact fit prior to final fitting and delivery of prosthesis.
- Continued patient care: The final fitting and delivery of your prosthesis is only the beginning of our relationship with you. Like almost all mechanical devices, your prosthesis will need periodic maintenance to sustain its highest level of operation. This also gives us the opportunity to monitor any physical or social changes that you may experience, and make the necessary adjustments. We recognize that our patients’ needs are constantly changing, and a continual assessment of these changes and their impact on your prosthetic requirements will be necessary.
We like to view our continued care as a partnership, between you and United Prosthetics, in which the goal is ensuring that future lifestyle changes continue to be positive ones.
