golferProcess Our goal is to work closely with physicians, therapists and other members of your rehabilitation team to deliver care in the most coordinated, clinically-effective way. We routinely attend patients’ initial appointments with physicians and therapists to ensure continuity of care. Once we’ve met with the referring physician, we can determine what type of prosthesis is needed. We work with orthopedic, vascular and general surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, and podiatrists in all of the hospitals throughout the Greater Dayton and Columbus Region.

Customized Care We spend time with each patient, getting to know you—your goals, your dreams and what you need to live a fulfilling lifestyle. Then, we customize a system that will work for you. We use many different manufacturers for different components, which gives us the flexibility of designing just the right system to supply the best patient care.

Patient Involvement It’s important for our patients to be involved in the decisions that affect their recovery from limb loss. We recommend that you obtain a free information packet, Because We Care, developed by the Amputee Coalition of America. This resource answers frequently asked questions and offers valuable information. To get a copy of this packet, please call and ask an Optimus representative.

I am an amputee and am less than satisfied with my current prosthetic care. What can Optimus Prosthetics do for me?”

Choosing your long-term prosthetist is one of the most important decisions you will ever make because it is critical that you are comfortable with your healthcare provider. Optimus accepts new patients, regardless of when an existing prosthesis was delivered. The first step is a free evaluation. At this stage, we identify the challenges at hand, set personal and professional goals, and formalize an implementation plan.

Once we’ve met with you, we can determine what type of prosthesis is needed.

We build long-term relationships with our patients to ensure that their prostheses continue to fit well, serve their needs, and enhance quality of life.
