American Orthopedics has positioned itself as the technology leader in prosthetics & orthotics over its long and successful history of providing outstanding care to the citizens of Central Ohio, including Columbus, Springfield and Marion locations.
- We were the first to introduce immediate postoperative prosthetic fitting to Ohio.
- We proudly implemented the post-operative fitting of a Removable Rigid Dressing (RRD) protocol that has significantly reduced the interval between amputation and prosthetic fitting and published research on the topic.
- The first below elbow myoelectric prosthesis in Columbus was fit by us.
- Nationally recognized by BiOM in fitting the first powered foot & ankle system in Central Ohio and 1 of 12 national launch facilities
- The first Utah Arm (myoelectric above elbow prosthesis) in Columbus
- Selected to be the exclusive provider for MyoPro in Central Ohio
Every patient is different, and their needs reflect that. We don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach with our care. Our practitioners evaluate each patient when they come in and work with them, their caregivers, and other allied health partners to create a plan for the patient to regain mobility. We use the latest technology available such as Microprocessor knees and ankles and Myo-electric upper extremity prostheses to give our patients the best care possible.
