Collier Orthotics and Prosthetics History
Collier O&P began as Collier Rehabilitation in 1981.
Founded by Milo Collier, Collier serviced the Northern East Bay Area from San Ramon, Oakland, to Vallejo, providing full Orthotic and Prosthetic services.
In 1988 John Russell bought Collier Rehabilitation in Pleasant Hill and developed a name for himself and the company by introducing a proprietary R-Wrap™ AFO, ANC no-cut AFO, and the V-gap patient-adjustable prosthetic socket that was ahead of its time. John Russell and Jesse Detorres were the Orthotist and Prosthetist at the time, with Rolland Bonilla as the main technician and three administrative personnel.
John Russell, ABC-certified Orthotist and Prosthetist, began custom engineering devices in the early 80’s. Committed to helping patients, doctors, and therapists with their most difficult cases, John created the proprietary R-Wrap™, and a whole family of unique devices, moving patients towards better results than doctors thought possible. Since Collier’s inception, many have tried to copy John Russell’s designs but no one has duplicated his results.
In 2012, Collier O&P was acquired by Castle Hill Holdings
