Building a Solid Support System

Get to Know Our Caring Team

We’ve been told: We listen.

Summit O and P is not just an ordinary Orthotics and Prosthetics company.  We take time to listen to the needs of each of our patients, making sure we hear what is important; what the obstacles are that they face, what challenges they want to overcome, and what their goals are. We want to give you hope, that there is a better life ahead! We celebrate your successes and look to build lasting relationships with our clients.

We’ve heard it said: We understand.

Every person we treat is unique and has their own personal story of pain, growth, fears and trials.  We understand some of these things, as many of our team members are either amputees themselves or have loved ones who have gone through the hurdles of therapy, recovery and moving forward in life.  We want you to know that we are here for you; we care and want to help you get back to living life.

We know that: We have solutions!

You may be a new amputee or wear a brace, or need a brace; and it’s important that you have the right functionality, comfort, and cosmetic appearance.   With our support and superior, technologically advanced products, we know that we have the right solution for your needs!  No matter how complicated your circumstance may appear, our team takes ‘expert care’ to give you the best outcome for your specific needs.
