Please understand that the Amputee Coalition cannot and does not make specific recommendations for products or services/ but can only suggest possible sources/ with no endorsement implied.

The Amputee Coalition, therefore, does not maintain a list of prosthetists. The following websites can help you find prosthetists and O&P facilities near you. You can then contact these professionals to ask about their experience and specialties in order to make the most informed selection of a provider based on your individual needs.

Prosthetist Finder

The Amputee Coalition partnered with OP Solutions to build the Prosthetist Finder which is a searchable directory of prosthetists located across the country. Finding a prosthetist that fits your needs is easier than you think. Search for prosthetists in your area by level of experience, credentials, preferred hours, or Spanish fluency.
