Your First Appointment  

At the time of your first visit we will collect your insurance information and pertinent medical history and create a permanent record for you. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow time for this procedure.

A University Surgical Associates Prosthetics (USAP) practitioner will discuss your needs and take several measurements. If you are being fitted for a leg prosthesis, please bring a pair of shorts. If being fitted for a prosthesis above the waist, a short-sleeve T-shirt will be helpful. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable during this process, and we will make every effort to inform throughout.


The prosthesis fabrication process differs with each patient and device. Your USAP practitioner will inform you of the time involved, and if necessary, when to schedule your return visit.
