You can trust our experience and knowledge of what works best for a wide variety of amputations

Over the years we have created have worked with patients with just about every variety of amputation possible and each case we have created a solution that has given our patient back function and mobility.

The most common lower-extremity amputations we see are:

  • Partial foot
  • Below the knee (Trans-tibial)
  • Lower leg including the knee (Knee disarticulation)
  • Above the knee (Trans-femoral)
  • Full leg (Hip disarticulation)

The most common upper-extremity
amputations we see are:

  • Partial hand.
  • Full hand and wrist (Wrist disarticulation)
  • Below the elbow (Trans-radial)
  • Lower arm including the elbow (Elbow disarticulation)
  • Above the elbow (Trans-humeral)
  • Full arm (Shoulder disarticulation)

We also have extensive experience with multiple
limb amputees:

  • Bilateral trans-tibial.
  • Bilateral trans-tibial / trans-femoral
  • Bilateral trans-femoral / trans-humeral
  • Bilateral trans-femoral
  • Trilateral trans-tibial / trans-femoral / trans-humeral



type of amputations

"I have been to many prosthetists since losing my leg. I am now in the most comfortable socket I have ever worn. I am able to wear my prosthesis for 16 hours a day without discomfort. When I am not working, I enjoy biking, hiking and canoeing." – Ron Hepler, Williamson

"I have an above knee amputation. I'm 89 years old and I use my prosthesis all day, every day. If I'm not a walking advertisement, there's no such thing! I highly recommend these folks to anybody." – Sidney Greenberg, Cazenovia, NY
