prosthetics and anaplastology
David Van Auker, MA, CP, CCA

David Van Auker, MA, CP, CCA is a board certified prosthetist and certified clinical anaplastologist (currently the only practitioner with these dual credentials in the country) with  over 20 years of experience, fitting some of the broadest range of prostheses available anywhere in the nation! While trained in the area of weight bearing limbs, he also specializes in anaplastology (facial prosthetics and cosmetic restorations). This unique combination of skills enables him to make prosthetics that look as good as they fit. This perspective adds a new dimension to your care. Because David handles each step of the fitting process, you get the best in both appearance and function. He is also the only certified prosthetist in the state that is also a practicing anaplastologist and one of a handful of dual discipline specialists in the United States. You are offered some of the most unique choices in prosthetic care anywhere in Michigan or in some cases, the world. He currently serves an international clientele.

Now one of the few prosthetists certified in all aspects of hand restoration technology. Patients can be assured of getting the most function combined with appearance from the same prosthetist. David Van Auker is perhaps the only prosthetist in the country who can fit the i-limb and make its cover on site! And now there are new possibilities for some partial hand patients too!
