Two-sided Patio Dorr Handles needed

We recently had our home built in Hernando, FL and would like to change out the patio door handles. My wife finds the outside handle to be inconvenient when entering the house with food items. The current outside handle is smaller than the inside with no gripping ability. Is it possible to install an outside or two-sided handles on the patio door that are true handles like the one in the attached photo? ? I don't know the make but have attached a photo of the current handles. Please let me know if you require further information to assist me with the issue. Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. I would need only the outside handle, but it does not appear to have any screws or a way to attach it. So, I may need to replace both that would allow for the outside attachment. But please guide me on the best method.

I just measured and as close as I can figure the numbers are
7 ¼
6 ½
As they are listed in your example, 88-014.
Also, I would be looking for Dark Bronze or Black for the handle color. Thanks

Installation holes are about 6 ½ inches, see attached photo, on the inside. Nothing on the outside. Hope this helps. Thanks

Unfortunately, the recessed handle set that your door uses, which is a similar design to our 82-002 or 82-008, is not designed to use an external handle. We do have a few pull options like the 88-009 and 88-002 but they can only be installed on the inside and attached to a handle set with the same 6-5/8" hole spacing. 

If your hole spacing has exactly 6-1/2" hole spacing, unfortunately, we do not carry any replacement pulls that would match. Also, please note that the 88-014 that you mentioned is an Andersen-specific part with 5-1/2" installation holes, which would be too small for your application regardless. We apologize for the inconvenience.
