Evaluations

From the initial screening at our Oklahoma City ​facility to long-term follow-up care, one practitioner oversees each patient’s treatment, with others assisting to provide comprehensive care. We perform thorough evaluations, taking into account a patient’s habits, lifestyle and goals, before designing an orthotic or prosthetic device. The orthotist or prosthetist will take measurements and may require follow-up appointments for fittings and adjustments. We are committed to your long-term care.
