Follow-up

Initially, after receiving their definitive prosthesis, new amputees usually return to their prosthetist frequently for adjustments and to pose questions that become evident as they gain endurance and "spread their wings." After a few months, the need for follow-up visits typically declines to once every 3-5 months. Follow-up visits address any problems the amputee may be having and routine maintenance, cleaning and replacement of mechanical components. Follow-up is a lifelong activity.

The Hinnant staff is prepared to guide amputees through the prosthetic process and help you achieve the ultimate functional outcome of which you are capable. We welcome your inquiries about any aspect of prosthetic care or management options for specific patients.
