In Surgery Services

Watch our Prosthetic Video Series by clicking the link in the upper right. This is a great source of information.

We offer in surgery services to Physicians. These are provided locally in the Memphis, TN area. We are contracted with ALL local hospitals and can be present during the surgery in those hospitals. Among the tasks provided are:

Prosthetics:

  • In surgery rigid dressings. This is done while the patient is still under anesthesia and takes less than 10 minutes and come up high on the thigh. These are usually removed after 5 days so the residual limb can be examined. We then apply a 2nd rigid dressing after the area has been cleansed. Usually  after another 5-7 days the 2nd dressing is removed and the same protocol is applied before the 3rd and final dressing is applied. Under normal healing, the sutures will be removed and the patient is measured for a preparatory Prosthesis. Prosthetic shrinkers are applied while the preparatory prosthesis is fabricated (1-3 days). Rigid dressings promote healing in a sterile environment, prevents flexion contractures, helps to protect the residual limb from accidental trauma and prevents further surgical edema. The rigid dressing will advance the patient to the preparatory prosthesis stage by more than 50%. During the surgical procedure we can discuss the future care of the patient and answer any Prosthetic questions that the surgeon may have.

  • In surgery temporary Prosthesis. These are provided to allow the patient to start early touch down weight bearing the very next day after surgery. These are not for all patients. We will gladly discuss the candidate criteria for this level of Prosthetic care.
