MEET CREATIVE P&O

While other orthotic and prosthetic facilities tout their abilities in providing the latest procedures and highest degree of technology, we at Creative Prosthetics and Orthotics approach our orthotic and prosthetic path for each patient based solely on what would realistically be in the best interest of the patient. This may be the simplest, most basic treatment, or the most advanced, highest technology application available today. We at Creative Prosthetics and Orthotics believe that compassion and service should be the cornerstone of our business, not just the devices we provide.
