In July of 2009 at the age of 28, I was hit by a car while driving my motorcycle. My left leg was so badly damaged that an amputation below the knee was necessary. After leaving the hospital, I returned home to continue recovering and prepare myself for the rest of my life. I was very active before my amputation and had every belief that I would return to such a life style again.
After my leg was healed, my Doctor referred me to Central Prosthetics & Orthotics where I met Paul Hatcher. I told Paul that I was anxious to begin walking again and return back to work doing construction as soon as possible. Presently I was getting around on crutches and was limited to what I could do. From the point of our initial visit to the time I received my prosthesis was 1 month. I immediately went back to living my life as I needed to. Paul was their every step of the way making the adjustments as needed and made sure that I got what I needed quickly.
I have been with Central Prosthetics & Orthotics for eight years now. I am as active as I want to be supporting my family, keeping up with my kids and enjoying life to its fullest.
