Losing a limb is a traumatic experience. You may feel helpless, frightened, angry and fear you will never again live a “normal” life. All of these emotions and more are normal reactions to losing a limb, but becoming an amputee does not signal an end of a full and productive life. You can rise to the challenge and we are here to help you, every step of the way.
Kootenai Prosthetics & Orthotics practitioners focus on what you can do, not what you cannot do, and our goal is to fit you with a prosthesis that gives you the ability to work, live and play as vigorously as you did before your amputation.
Our patients range from children to senior citizens to athletes, each with unique physical circumstances and personal goals, and our greatest compliment is watching a patient walk with confidence, comfort and complete control. In many cases, we are privileged to see our patients ski down mountains or across lakes, ride horses or bicycles, or return to work in fields and forests.
At KPO we believe that exceptional techniques yield exceptional outcomes and we utilize the latest innovations in materials and componentry to produce and fit you with an appropriate, thoughtfully designed prosthesis. Because we work with patients from post-operative care through fitting and lifetime adjustments, we enjoy long-term relationships with our patients.
