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.
Know that it takes time to adjust to lower limb prosthetics, and we will be there for you every step of the way as you work with your rehab team and turn to us for assistance with adjustments. Let your treating physician know you want to work with us at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, and we can tell you more about our lower limb prosthetic options.
