Prosthetics

Our extensive prosthetics program addresses the limb loss needs of adults and children. Our amputee care coordinator is available for pre-op consultation and throughout the prosthetic process to assist you in navigating the challenges and life changes that occur with an amputation. Please contact David Grubb, Amputee Care Coordinator, at (864) 522-3880 or dgrubb@ghs.org if you have any questions or would like to set up a consultation.

Our goal is to assist our patients and their families in achieving optimal independence and function. Our board certified Prosthetists provide advanced technology in the development of both upper- and lower- extremity prostheses, including myoelectric arm prosthetics and computer controlled leg prosthetics. With the prosthetic field constantly changing and the introduction of newer technology, our practitioners continually strive to utilize the latest studied technology.

GHS Center for Prosthetics & Orthotics along with the Roger C. Peace Physiatrists have developed an Amputee Clinic to provide comprehensive follow-up and care for people with amputations. Our interdisciplinary team is led by a board-certified doctor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. An integrated plan of care will be developed to address mobility, self-care, prosthetic intervention, medical management and other essential needs. Additionally, we collaborate with other specialists on your care team, which may include vascular surgeons, orthopaedists, internists, family medicine physicians, as well as clinicians such as prosthetists, physical therapists and occupational therapists.
