Our Services A - Z - Prosthetics and Laser Service

About the service

The Prosthetic department and Laser Service is part of the Mersey Regional Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Centre which serves a population of approximately 5 million people.

“Innovation” is defined as “introducing something new” and the Prosthetic department based at Whiston Hospital fulfil this definition with every patient that they treat. The work carried out within the department is non-prescriptive, requiring open minded planning and manufacturing processes to provide our patients with unique solutions to each individual’s condition. Further innovations are developed beyond the area of direct patient care. The Prosthetic Team have constantly delivered a range of bespoke models and interventions providing NHS staff with tangible methods to deliver or teach the specialised care needed for our patients.

The Prosthetic Team are committed to sharing these innovations by developing partnerships throughout the NHS.  The team also manage the Maxillofacial Laboratory based on the Aintree University Hospital site. This work involves all aspects of maxillofacial and craniofacial surgery planning and complex facial prosthetics.
