Amputation may be in my future. Is there anyone who can help me with my questions?

We would love to take the time to help you. Give us a call to schedule a free consultation. You will meet with our Prosthetist-Peter.

What happens after my amputation?

Shortly after surgery, an Immediate Post-Operative Prosthetic (IPOP) is placed over the surgical dressing and/or prosthetic sock and will help to protect the wound from injury and aid in reducing swelling.

When am I ready to use a prosthesis?

Per your physician’s instructions and once the wound is healed, patients are able to use a prosthetic compression sock or “shrinker” which will help to keep swelling at a minimum while you become weight-bearing again. The next step will be a casting of the limb. A “temporary” prosthetic or “socket” is made and used for a trial period in which we can make adjustments to ensure the fit is best. A “permanent” socket is made from the temporary after the trial period is over and then you are ready to receive the finished product!

Are you able to personalize my prosthetic?

Yes! We enjoy taking part in the process to create your prosthetic for you. There are definitely options to suit your preferences for personalization, so please bring your ideas to us!

What can I expect using a prosthetic?

There is a journey of lifelong learning involved with your prosthetic and needs. You may need adjustments or eventual replacement to your prosthetic as your limb changes over time and according to your activity levels.
