Mark Betters

Finger and Partial Hand Amputee

Construction Superintendent Mark Betters was working on a job site in 2017 when part of his left hand was crushed in an accident. His thumb, index finger and middle finger had to be amputated. Mark chose the option of having a toe to thumb transfer, where his big toe was moved to his hand to take the place of his thumb. He was also fit with a Point Digits prosthesis that stands up to the rugged demands of working in construction and driving heavy machinery.

There’s nothing lacking in my life because of my accident. With my Point Digits and my new thumb, it just feels natural. I was able to go back to work quickly and without limitations.
