Artizan Medical Prosthetics is a UK based company run by me, Robert Whitehead, that provides specialist prosthetic services, also known as medical or clinical Anaplastology, to both the NHS and private sector. This includes Facial and body prosthesis, Maxillofacial / Oral Surgery and custom keloid splint devices.

I appreciate that no two people are the same and therefore I treat you as a person, not a patient. With over 20 years experience I can provide you with the most realistic bespoke prosthesis possible, using the latest advances in technology and the highest quality materials available.

Prices are competitive and reflect not only the high level of specialist training, experience and expertise but also the flexibility and range of work undertaken.

Please take a look around the site, and should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
