Meet Our Team

Our interdisciplinary team is led by a physiatrist, a doctor who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Your team may also include:

  • A prosthetist who makes prostheses (or artificial limbs).
  • An orthotist who creates support braces.
  • A physical therapist. Physical therapy will help you improve your independence when walking with your prosthetic limb, improve your balance, and improve your overall strength and endurance as you return to your normal daily activities. Physical therapy is also beneficial prior to receiving your prosthesis by helping to improve the overall strength and range of motion of your limb to ensure proper alignment and optimal performance once you receive your new device.
  • An occupational therapist who assists in adapting to activities of daily living. Occupational therapy will address pain management, caring for your device, getting your device on and off efficiently, bathroom setup, dressing, psychosocial concepts around limb loss, driving, and return to work. OT can provide information and exercises to preserve your shoulder and arm strength as you progress through your life. We will also address any other areas impacting your independence with your activities of daily living.

In addition, the physiatrist can assist you with referrals to other medical specialists as needed.
