Patient Stories

Our patients are at the center of everything we do and a few of them were kind enough to share their stories with us.

Michael Dreyer

“Being able to talk about your situation is so important. Being an amputee is not easy, but you're not alone. Take what you have been given and fulfill your dreams and goals.”

Glenn Barfield

“I sat up after being thrown 35 feet and realized my leg was severed.”

Bronson (The Magnificent)

“Although it is very difficult to see your infant in casts and undergo surgery, focus on the end result - your child will be able to walk, skip, and run.”


Per Jensen

“Have a positive attitude and try to live as normally as possible, doing what you want to do.”

Emma Meyers

“Families, remember that you are your child's best advocate.”

Brett Wolfe

“Know what you want to do with your prostheses and understand you own skills and limits.”


Amina Nawaz

“I am happy... I hope everyone who has this [procedure] can be happy and enjoy life again.”

Lori McPhetridge

“Being able to walk again has been one of the greatest things to happen to me and it is getting better all the time.”

Ron Hoeffer

“My prosthesis has given me my self-esteem back and the ability to hold a job.”
