Unsuccessful Outcomes; The Unfortunate Result of Unspecialized Care
Many of our clients have come to us over the years with very poorly executed prostheses. While many providers in healthcare want to serve these patients and attempt do so with the best intentions it is unfortunate that the final results are so poor, or at least of much less quality and accuracy than they could be. Some samples are included here just to demonstrate the difference in quality that patients and physicians should be aware of.
We are not the only provider of high quality orbital and facial prosthetics. However, our having focused so intently on the special challenges and artistic demands of this area illustrates just how much difference this makes in comparison to the work that result when an individual attempts to provide the service. And it is not only the outward visual effect that suffers from the effort of an unspecialized provider. It is all the nuanced care that the patient misses in not receiving the guidance of a seasoned veteran in facial prosthetics in terms of the best adhesives, fitting strategies, silicone variants, cleaning and hygiene management and the experience of knowing how best to prepare that patient with a holistic understanding of the prosthesis and how it relates as part of them and their lifestyle.
