The loss of any extremity or limb thru amputation or birth anomalies is a life altering event. Absence of all or part of the hand presents a unique set of challenges for any individual; however the use of prosthetic devises can dramatically assist in recovering much of those lost abilities. The loss of an extremity involves more than just the physical loss but also physiological and emotional challenges as well.
Restoring body symmetry is of vital importance to some individuals. We have a solution. From the tip of your finger to above the shoulder there is a prosthetic solution available. Gulf Coast Prosthetics has access to all the latest technological advancements available including advanced training.
Infant and children prosthesis should not be a down scaled version of an adult prosthesis. Pediatric prosthetic care should be recognized as a specialty and the prosthetist providing care for our children must focus on the specific needs and challenges that this age group requires. The pediatric prosthetist should develop the communication skills required to interact with both patients and their parents. Children require regular monitoring of their prosthesis, constant adjustments to their prosthesis and periodical evaluations of their prosthetic needs as they grow, develop and mature.
When pediatric prosthetic care is required, Gulf Coast Prosthetics truly lives up to our promise of life-long care. We commit to each family so parents can feel confident that their child is being treated with the optimum outcome in mind, not only for the present, but for future changes in their lives as well.
