Meet the Best Practitioners in Baltimore
Can’t Come To Us? We’ll Come To You!
We know how difficult it can be to get to a clinic or your health care professional. Scheduling an appointment, finding transportation, navigating large healthcare complexes, and sometimes even having to pay for parking brings its challenges. We know that you will be spending the majority of your time in your home or work setting, and not in our office. Our clinicians would like to take your home/work setting into account while gathering all of the pertinent medical evaluation information. And of course, we know that you would rather be seen in the comfort of your home and not wait long hours in a medical waiting room.
Please contact us to learn more about this unprecedented approach to visiting with you at home/work for your initial prosthetic evaluation.
Prosthetics for a Life Without Limits
One of the most traumatic experiences is the amputation, or surgical removal, of an appendage or limb. While the majority of amputations occur as a result of disease, almost 25% of amputations are the result of a traumatic accident. Fortunately, a prosthesis or man-made device to replace an amputated limb can be custom fit to each individual restoring the function and appearance of a full or partial missing limb. Because of the vast differences in human anatomy, the fabrication of prostheses is an intricate, individualized procedure requiring a high degree of skill and sophisticated technology. Advantage Prosthetics & Orthotics has a team of highly trained clinical staff that are sensitive to the often painful process of receiving a prosthetic limb or appendage. You will receive a unique treatment plan, extensive follow-up and a customized prosthetic that meets your body type, level of health and activity needs.
Orthotics for a Life Without Pain
When you say the word “orthotics”, most people think of shoe inserts. While these are an important part of the field, orthotics is a term used to describe a medical field that provides custom-designed, modified and fitted assistive devices that help patients regain their mobility or appearance of a damaged or diseased part of their body. Orthotics are custom fabricated to fit each individual patient’s body, health, physical fitness, and mobility limitations. Our clinical team has been specifically trained to create corrective and supportive braces that help our patients compensate for a variety of disorders of their arms, wrists and hands. Not only will you receive a customized treatment plan, modified and fitted devices and counseling on using them, our team will conduct periodic re-evaluation for fit and function. You will have an orthotic that fits you perfectly now, and you will be re-evaluated and have adjustments as your health and fitness needs change over time.
