The loss of a limb is more than losing an easy way to move and walk, but potentially the ability to take a trip to a local park, sketch the Blue Ridge Mountains, or hit the dance floor at your favorite music club in Asheville. You lose access to something that brought you joy.
It takes a team of friends and medical professionals to get your independence back. Part of that journey might include using a prosthetic. Prosthetic limbs not only help aid your physical capabilities but improve your body image, getting you out into the world and back to yourself.
For over 60 years, the Orthopedic Appliance Company has provided Western North Carolina with the highest quality custom orthopedic bracing and artificial limbs. We specialize in giving individuals back their mobility and independence after the loss of a limb.
There is no one size fits all solution. By working with physicians, therapists, and most importantly, the patient, we create the best prosthetic solution for the individual.
The sooner rehabilitation starts, the better the outcomes will be. The Orthopedic Appliance Company offers full-service treatment on prosthetics from initial assessment to ongoing maintenance.
Our skilled practitioner team has a detailed and proven process to create the best solution for our patients. Adjusting to life with an artificial limb can be one of the single most challenging and most rewarding experiences. With advances in technology and accessibility awareness, an artificial limb doesn’t have to slow you down.
Here at Orthopedic Appliance Company, we are proud that our staff and facility are certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics. By holding ourselves to such rigorous professional standards for treatment and care, you can be sure you are in the best hands.
