Upper Limb Prostheses

Upper limb prosthetics

Prosthetists at UT Health San Antonio provide customized treatment plans for patients with upper limb amputations. Our team of specialists provide comprehensive and individualized care so that you may achieve your goals.

According to the National Limb Loss Information Center, there are approximately 1.7 million people living with limb loss in the United States. Upper limb loss, or amputation, is most often caused by cancer, trauma or congenital. Prosthetists at UT Health San Antonio will evaluate each patient’s residual limb and discuss design and component options with the patient based on their activity level, occupation, and goals for prosthetic use. This comprehensive evaluation ensures that the custom prosthetic design selected will best meet your needs. We also provide ongoing follow up services to ensure that your prosthesis allows you to continue to meet your needs and reach your functional goals.

  • Forequarter
  • Shoulder disarticulation
  • Transhumeral (above elbow)
