I strive to initiate a relationship
before patients leave the hospital. This early interaction
helps alleviate stress as well as establishes trust and a
critical communication path that allows my patients and I
to feel comfortable with each other and the condition. Throughout
the treatment process, I spend as much time with each patient
as necessary to ensure they are fully confident using their
prosthesis. And I’m always available to answer any questions
and address any issues that might arise.
When an accident or condition requires an artificial limb,
the prospect and process is stressful for patients and support
group alike. I strongly believe in involving and educating
family and caretakers so they can best contribute each patient’s
recovery and adjustment to the prosthesis. This helps everyone
overcome fear, inhibitions and the unknown, and establishes
an always-present support group that goes a long way toward
a positive outcome.
Whether patients require routine attention or get up and return
to an active life without continual need of my services, I
am there for life. This is true for current patients and those
who haven’t been patients for years.
When it’s time for patients to be fitted with a custom
prosthesis, they have the assurance of knowing I work with
the industry’s leading manufacturers to create limbs
that look, fit and work great. I have extensive experience
in hand-designing and closely supervising the creation of
cosmetic prostheses with artful shaping, sculpting and coloring
that give patients much more than just the confidence of functionality.
Everyone is built differently. So a prosthesis that works
perfectly for one patient, won’t necessarily work for
another – even if he and she are the exact same dimensions
or share the same goals. So whether a new limb requires some
fine-tuning or it feels great the first time we put it on,
I pledge to provide maximum comfort and operability.
