As a veteran and minority owned business, the practice is proud to aid members of the U.S. Armed Forces from throughout the country. Beyond treating veterans, the Center treats individuals from all walks of life, providing the same standard of excellent quality care to the general public.

The Center for Custom Prosthetics will be expanding its custom services this Fall by opening new offices on Florida’s east coast. These offices will better serve patients, not only throughout Florida, but nationwide as they’ll be easily accessible via the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach airports.

The custom prosthetic services offered at the practice include ocular, orbital, ear, nose, hand, fingers, toes and breast. These services are primarily intended for patients with traumatic and sport injuries, cancer, surgical and congenital deformities. The Center has both national and international recognition, with patients traveling from around the world to receive custom prosthetics. The practice has an excellent staff that assists with all insurance companies in obtaining initial benefits and eligibility, pre-authorizations, and the filing of claims for all our patients.

With a combined experience of over 60 years, Raymond E. Peters and David Trainer bring renowned expertise to the practice. “It’s truly an honor to serve both veterans and everyday adults, children and even infants,” stated Peters. “Whether we’re creating a custom made prosthetic eye, prosthetic ear or prosthetic nose, it’s humbling to know that we can positively impact a patient’s life, not just physically but emotionally as well,” added Trainer.
