UM Shore Regional Health Amputee Clinic provides care and training to the Eastern Shore area through our Center for Prosthetic an Orthotic Care. Receiving a prosthetic or orthotic device requires preparation and support. Our approach to prosthetic and orthotic devices, such as braces, splints and other supports includes educating you on recovery and functional status.

Whether you are new to prosthetics or have maintained use over time, we can help you improve your strength and independence through our clinics. We also provide prosthetic and orthotic prescriptions.
