Let us help you regain mobility with a properly fitted lower limb prosthetic device.
A lower limb amputation creates a real change for yourself and for your family. At Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, we want to be your trusted companion throughout recovery with individualized help selecting and fitting a new lower limb prosthetic. Our purpose is to affirm to you that losing a limb is not the end, and with the right lower limb prosthetics, you can regain your mobility and independence.
Your ability to master day-to-day tasks, recreational activities, and workplace activities is dependent on the fitting of your lower limb prosthetics. Before making a suggestion for a lower limb prosthetic, we will assess many factors, including:
- How well your existing limbs function
- The condition of the residual limb
- The stability of your joints
- The activities you wish to accomplish and level of mobility you desire
When working with patients in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, we usually being by providing a temporary prosthesis that is worn for a few months. When the residual limb fully heals and conforms to a healthy shape, we uncover permanent prosthesis options and move forward with the fitting process.
