According to the American Board for Certified in Prosthetics, Orthotics and Pedorthics an ABC certified orthotist and/or prosthetist is an allied health professional specifically educated and trained to make and fit orthoses and prostheses and manage comprehensive orthotic and/or prosthetic patient care. As ABC practitioners, these individuals are certified to independently provide or supervise the provision of patient care. This includes patient assessment, formulation of a treatment plan, implementation of a treatment plan, follow-up and practice management.
Paul founded Able Orthopedics in 1987 with his first location in Port Huron Michigan. He was drawn to the Blue Water Area due to its beauty and to fulfill a need in the area to provide prosthetics and orthotics to the community. His desire and compassion is to help improve the lives of those suffering from limb loss, muscle deformities and other bone and joint related injuries. Paul received his bachelor degree at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills California and received his prosthetic, orthotic and pedorthics degree at Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois. He enjoys golfing with his wife Sharon, and enjoys spending time with his 4 children Aaron, Rachelle, Tim and Emily. Paul has also traveled around the world doing mission work. He has traveled to Kenya Africa to help build a school for the local children and to Seoul Korea to build partnerships to provide prosthetics for the needy. It is his hope to provide quality orthotic and prosthetic services to the community and help them to reach their maximum functional levels and improve the quality of their lives.
“Although there are many other orthotic and prosthetic providers in the area, we differ greatly because we listen. That is a very important aspect of my vision for Able Orthopedics.”
