A typical finger prosthesis requires at least 1.5 centimeters of remaining finger length to secure a prosthesis. In certain cases, some or all of the corresponding ray within the hand is also lost. The complete absence of a finger makes being fitted with a prosthesis decidedly more complex.
While many practitioners would say that there are no prosthetic solutions, or may suggest that an entire prosthetic glove must be worn, we chose a different solution for this case. We were able to extend the restoration around the ring finger and wrist for retention. Jewelry is used to help hide the margins and no glove is required.
