Yes it's possible to use prosthetic fingers. Since the stump is at the level of the palm, it has to be custom made. You can contact Karthick from Ottobock. Unfortunately Practo doesn't show sharing of numbers. But you should be able to get their office number by googling for it. Their office is in Anna Nagar. Give him my reference and he should be able to help you out.
