Prosthetics for Women Veterans

VA offers access to a variety of care services for Veterans with disabilities and supports women Veterans by providing specific prosthetic items to meet their unique needs. The term “prosthetic” includes any medical device that supports or replaces loss of a body part or function. For women this includes support items for incontinence or pelvic floor issues, wigs for alopecia, customized orthotics and artificial limbs, post-mastectomy items such as undergarments with discreet pockets to hold prosthetics, and more 

In addition, some Women’s Health Clinics offer prosthetic boutiques where prosthetic items are on display for women to see available items in person.  

Women Veterans can also participate in an adaptive sport to help further rehabilitation and use services such as physical or occupational therapy and spinal cord injury services. They also have access to mobility aids such as walkers and wheelchairs, hearing aids and eye glasses, communication and assistive devices, and durable medical equipment. 

All services are provided in medical care settings by health care personnel. Women Veterans interested in learning more should contact their nearest VA medical center and ask for the Women Veterans Program Manager or call the Women Veterans Call Center at 1-855-VA WOMEN (1-855-829-6636).
