Marcus Baker and his team of orthotic and prosthetic specialists understand that your lifestyle and goals must be considered in order to develop custom solutions.
No. The prosthesis should not hurt unless there is something wrong. Contact your prosthetist immediately if pain or discomfort occurs.
Your physician will determine when you are ready for prosthetic fitting. Typically, it takes 3-6 weeks for the limb to heal after surgery. Primarily, it depends on how fast you heal and whether or not there are any other existing problems.
A preparatory or temporary prosthesis is used to allow the patient to begin walking in a relatively fast period of time. A temporary/preparatory prosthesis can be fitted in 1 to 2 days after evaluation if the limb is ready. The preparatory stage can last 2-6 months, depending on limb shrinkage.
If you have any general questions about our process or about your current prosthesis, please reach out to us and schedule an appointment. We understand what you are going through, with this understanding and our expertise, we strive to eliminate the thought that your device is a barrier to doing the things you need and love to do. We care about the outcomes of our patients and sincerely want you to have the best results possible. Contact our Arlington location for an appointment today.
