You can have a prosthetic limb fitted. Function you gain with the artificial limb depends on the level of amputation and the type of the prosthesis. Arm-prostheses are usually designed for basic, coarse functions only. Many people end up using them only for better cosmesis. Modern and costlier ones are lighter and can perform few complex movements also (e.g Myoelectric)
