Adapting to Your Prosthesis
One of the most rewarding moments for our prosthetic specialists in Traverse City, Cadillac, Petoskey, or any of our more than 20 locations in Michigan, is when they help an amputee or cancer survivor really love using a new prosthesis.
Adapting to a new prosthesis can be a challenge, particularly if you have lost a limb due to an accident or medical condition that required amputation. We understand that many factors influence how you adjust to life as an amputee and that different people will have different experiences.
We are proud to offer amputees a wide selection of quality prosthesis options, always fitted by our friendly, expert staff. Whether you’re looking for lightweight carbon graphite sports prostheses, microprocessor or C-Leg artificial limbs, myo-electric upper extremity prosthesis, or mastectomy fittings, we can help you problem solve and evaluate which options suit your unique requirements.
Women who have undergone a mastectomy for cancer treatment can trust that our staff will help fit them with comfortable, natural looking prosthetic breasts that will help them feel good. Our mastectomy fittings are one of our many specialized care services.
Learning to live life with a new normal as an amputee or cancer survivor is a process and we’re always ready to answer the most frequently asked questions about prosthetics. You can count on our specialists to help you navigate all the choices and options available so you can make informed decisions and even consider additional prosthesis options like shower limbs, swimming limbs, or specialized sports limbs.
Fitting your prosthesis well is key to comfort; we always strive to make sure our clients are comfortable and that their prosthetics function optimally. We always encourage them to consider several factors when selecting a prosthesis, including lifestyle, emotional support through the rehabilitation process, and putting together a maintenance plan.
One of the benefits of trusting us for your prosthetic needs is that Teter Orthotics & Prosthetics accepts many different health insurance plans. We also have the flexibility to work out individualized extended payment plans so that amputees and other clients are able to get the services and devices they need.
