Certified Practitioner Team Members

Our first priority is to listen to and answer your questions to help meet your goals.

When it is time to visit your Orthotist or Prosthetist, you need someone who will listen. A number of our patients rely on continued care, and we see them at regularly scheduled appointments. When you find a practitioner knows your history and can help you through the rough spots, appointments get a little easier.

For the convenience of our patients, our orthotists and prosthetists are available for office visits at all three of our Northern California locations or you can email us below.

Patient Care Locations in Sacramento, Oakland and East Bay

Our certified practitioners work with your care team to formulate a plan of care for your best possible outcome. Each practitioners was chosen for their unique skill-set within their specialty.

Compassion

Our practitioners are by your side to help you meet your needs and goals. If you are struggling or need help with your prosthesis, you can call on us at any time.

Our Director of Prosthetics holds a degree in psychology, which gives him better insight to care for patients with limb loss — and he is a terrific listener. Each patient is unique and deserves to be treated as a whole individual, not just as an amputee.

Education

Our certified practitioners have the knowledge and experience to provide device training from the basics to the highest-level device. Their many years of experience is a resource for their patients in all areas of their care.

Communication

We spend time listening to our patients and their particular needs in order to provide the most appropriate care. We work as a team with other providers for our patient’s benefit.

Our bilingual practitioners take great satisfaction in providing Spanish speaking patients the ability to communicate in their native language.

For patients to have success with their care plan goals, they need to be educated on how to maximize the functions of their prosthesis or orthosis, and be able to clearly explain their needs and goals to their practitioner. Traveling the patient care journey in one’s primary language provides our patients a sense of confidence and security that they are receiving the best care possible.
