  • How do I make an appointment?

    You can contact our office at 985-626-1135 to setup an appointment for a free evaluation with one of our knowledgeable practitioners.

  • Does my insurance pay for prosthetic / orthotic services?

    Most insurance companies do cover orthotic and prosthetic services. The types of services they cover and the amount depends on your insurance coverage. Our administrative staff is available to review your policy and provide you with knowledgeable information on your coverage plans. We make every effort to meet your specific financial situation and guide you through the insurance process.

  • What insurance do you accept?

    We accept Medicare, Louisiana Medicaid and most major insurances. Contact our office regarding any questions you may have for insurance.

  • What is a prosthesis?

    In medicine, a prosthesis is an artificial device that replaces a missing body part, which may be lost through trauma, disease, or a condition present at birth. Prostheses are intended to restore the normal functions of the missing body part.

  • Can I contact you prior to an amputation?

    Yes, our practitioners are here to answer your questions. Please contact our office for a free consultation. Our staff is here to help our patients understand the prosthetic process and to feel more at ease.

  • What if my prosthesis is not fitting well?

    Contact our office with any problems. You should always call your Prosthetist if something is irritating your skin or causing you pain. It is not uncommon for a prosthesis to rub in certain areas. This can be corrected by your Prosthetist to make the prosthesis more comfortable. If there is ever a time you are unable to wear your prosthesis because the socket is too large or too small, call your Prosthetist immediately. It is very important to take care of these issues as soon as possible. Various factors can cause your limb to swell, making your prosthesis tight. Also, wearing your prosthesis throughout the day can cause your limb to decrease in size. Your Prosthetist will go over these issues with you.

  • What is an orthosis?

    An orthosis is "an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system.” An orthosis may be used to:

    • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint, or body segment for a particular reason
    • Reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose

  • What if my orthosis is uncomfortable?

    Contact our office with any problems or concerns. Orthotics are designed to correct musculoskeletal deformities and may not always be comfortable to wear. Sometimes adjustments are needed for comfort. Your Orthotist will re-evaluate your orthosis and make adjustments as necessary. Always call your Orthotist if you are experiencing any pain, skin disruptions or redness on your skin.
