Our Prosthesis Process

With silicone hand restoration there is no magic involved, just highly focused work work we enjoy so our patient can relax! We literally work hand-in-hand with our clients from assessment through careful capture of every possible detail to the final evaluation of the fit and final result of the prosthesis.

The process usually involves direct impressions to record the areas involved, fitting of test sockets to assure a perfect fit, preparing detailed models, formulating colors and finally delivery of the prosthesis with training and instructions. Our mold fabrication and silicone processing steps occur between your visits.

Our balance of prosthetics credentials, experience with silicone restoration and over 3 decades of documented successful outcomes are second to none in the United States. I invite you to learn more about Medical Art Prosthetics today.

A person is peeling off the finger nail.

Finger prostheses function in many ways in your activities of daily life (ADLs). They restore the ability to hold and position objects. With the restored finger length and natural flexed position, you can grasp and hold a can for instance without it slipping out of your hand. The restored length of fingers and thumb also provides finger-finger and finger-thumb opposition which is important in pinching and securing small or thin objects like pens and paper. Loss of function associated with amputation is well documented and quantified by the number of digits affected.

You asked about the process. In general, we prefer patients come to visit Madison or one of our other locations and stay nearby for 3 days. We work with you a little each day to create checks sockets, verify comfort and retention, and achieve maximum aesthetics and accuracy all while you watch your unique prosthesis being made. We use our scanning and 3D printing when helpful, but make no mistake, there is no better way to create and deliver a silicone prosthesis than this direct, focused, single-practitioner approach.

We emphasize our results by presenting at the time of your consultation many high quality close-up photos of similar patient outcomes, and I recommend you always request this from any provider you might be considering. Currently, we are the only facility in the Midwest and perhaps the U.S. with dual board certification in extremity/hand prosthetics and clinical anaplastology. This means your prosthesis is not only created by award-winning artists/anaplastologists, but also under the guidance of a certified prosthetist for verification of a safe and comfortable fit. Furthermore, the clinical notes of the certified prosthetist can substantiate medical necessity in a way that anaplastology credentials alone do not. This is important if you want insurance approval/reimbursement.

All this being said, we do want to reach anyone wanting a prosthesis developed within our unique laboratory. We are developing a distance program that would allow us to partner with select patients at a distance without coming to our offices and at a lower cost. Please call the office if you would like to discuss this option in more detail.

If you would like to see some specific examples or obtain fee ranges, please email several photos of the affected hand.
