OrthoCarolina and Hanger Clinic Partner for Partial Hand Prosthetics
Individuals with partial hand amputations desiring individual finger control of a myoelectric hand might benefit from a groundbreaking surgical procedure called muscle transfer.
In this procedure, existing muscles that previously connected to the fingers are moved to the back of the hand without damaging the muscles’ connection to nerves and blood vessels.
This partnership began when Hanger Clinic Upper Limb Specialist Brian Monroe partnered with Dr. Glenn Gaston and Dr. Bryan Loeffler to create a prosthesis that helped a patient regain individual finger control after muscle transfer surgery at OrthoCarolina.
