Peter says, " Osseointegration..."

At the AOPA National Assembly in Boston last week, I had a chance to speak at length with Cindy, a recent osseointegration patient.

It's an amazing story. More to come on this in upcoming newsletters!

Questions for Peter?
Vacuum Assisted Sockets
We love doing vacuum assisted sockets. This system has many attributes that rectify the common, persistent design flaws associated with traditional sockets.

Wyatt is Working Hard!

Check out our patient Wyatt who is working hard to walk again.

This is not an easy task for a bilateral transfemoral (above knee) amputee. We love his tenacity and his work ethic. He will succeed because he will not give up.

The "
Amputee Mobility Predictor" is an excellent tool to use as an assessment for your patients functional potential.

 It is best when it is performed and scored by a patient's physical therapist . Contact our office if you need a copy of the test.
