We want you to show your pride and be an inspiration to help others through the recovery process.
Our prosthetists and orthotists are Board for Certification / Accreditation (BOC, BOCO, BOCP) or American Board of Certification (ABC, CO, CP) certified. We fabricate orthoses and prostheses via traditional methods such as hand casting and plaster modeling as well as using technology, science, and state of the art digital capture through scanning, Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD / CAM) 3D printing technology (3DP).
We work with the patient and their family, caregiver, doctor, referral source, veterans and insurance companies (Humana, BCBS, Meridian, Medicare, etc.). We provide education and training for donning (putting device on), doffing (taking device off), care, cleaning, break in / wearing schedule, and precautions. Our knowledgeable team provides introductory gait (standing and walking) training to increase step length and gait speed. We also coordinate with other health care practitioners such as physical (PT) or occupational therapists (OT). We encourage pre and post-operative care for contracture for longer term therapy, strength training and rehabilitation.
Our commitment is to our patient’s full recovery. We pride ourselves on helping people with limb loss return to life. Each patient is unique and so is their treatment plan.
