Life with a prosthesis is different, but it can be fulfilling and complete on many levels. Our patients are constantly overcoming obstacles; choosing to pursue their dreams of being independent, beginning new careers, playing sports, starting families, traveling and so much more. They are living proof of what is possible when you have the right prosthesis, training, support, and motivation to thrive.
Doing what you love flings open the door to happiness, and for our friend Brian Doyne, that means going rock climbing. Brian was severely injured and lost his left arm in 2005 while serving in the Army in Iraq. He is one of the thousands of people we’ve worked with to create a unique prosthetic solution that lets him get back to his favorite activity. Because life is about more than being able to fold your laundry or prepare a meal---it’s about being able to do what makes you happy.
For just about everyone, going to work means using your hands, so it's easy to see why one of the first questions people have when they lose part of an upper limb is "Will I be able to work?" Fortunately, the answer for many of our patients is yes. Prosthetic rehabilitation can help those with upper limb differences get back to work. We start by determining the occupational requirements of a patient's job, then we design a prosthesis that is both functional and comfortable to wear for the duration of a workday. Our therapy team is involved from the beginning to ensure a patient receives proper training to maximize their ability to use their prosthesis at work.
