After being denied insurance, a Nebraska man was given a 3D-printed prosthetic finger: ‘It’s made me whole.’

Adam Cutshall was at home in Lincoln, Nebraska, creating a mini golf course for his son when he lost part of his pinky finger due to a slip with his power tools.

“I was inebriated, which wasn’t unusual for me till late. Power tools and alcohol don’t mix well,” he says of the accident, which happened in his mid-20s.

After years of being denied insurance coverage for a prosthetic and incurring out-of-pocket payments of up to $20,000, Cutshall, now 47, concluded that social media could help him.
