Prosthetic Arm and Prosthetic Hand Specialists

Are you are exploring a prosthetic arm for the first time?  Perhaps you are switching clinicians or revisiting your prosthetic options after a long absence?  In any event, choosing a prosthetist is one of the more important decisions you will make.  Our Upper Limb Specialists care for more patients than any other prosthetic provider and we are the industry leader in prosthetic arms, hands and fingers.  With approximately 800 patient care centers in the US, our national network of specialists provide local care that allows you to stay closer to home during your rehabilitation and prosthetic training.

When and How To Choose an Upper Limb Prosthetist

We recommend interviewing prosthetists as soon as possible before or after an amputation surgery. Our national experts have learned that people who receive an artificial arm or prosthetic hand shortly after an amputation return to work faster and have a better success rate than those who delay their prosthetic fitting.  Toddlers fitted with an upper limb prosthesis within 2 years of birth are much more likely to wear a prosthesis long-term. 

Your hospital or doctor may recommend or provide you a list of prosthetic companies, or you might be interested in switching prosthetic companies. To help prepare for your conversation, we suggest this list of questions to ask when interviewing a prosthetist.  Remember that you always have a choice of prosthetic providers and your interviews will help you find the one that works best for you.  Many patients choose Hanger Clinic because: 

  • Our Upper Limb Specialists provide expert prosthetic care at all locations in the US.
  • Our national network of trained occupational therapists keeps you close to home while helping you get back to work and achieve your goals sooner.
