Clinical Manager Prosthetist • Orthotist
Credentials & Education
Chose O&P Field Because
Prior to making the prosthetics and orthotics profession his own, Larry had years of experience working with a different type of body––automobile bodies. He worked in his own paint & body shop which he describes as a stressful job because of the deadlines imposed by clients. At the encouragement of an O&P practitioner, Larry decided to begin on the job training in prosthetics and orthotics in 1990 and hasn’t regretted it.
“Being able to help people walk again is very special to me. I take inspiration from my patients when I witness their commitment to better themselves, going from what can sometimes be a difficult point in their lives to a promising one.”
Lately, Larry’s six grandchildren have been keeping him busy at home, but he still manages to spend time doing paint and bodywork on cars, which is something that has interested him since he was in high school. In fact, he still owns a 1955 Chevrolet that he purchased from his older brother in 1975. He also enjoys riding his motorcycle. And although he admits that he hasn’t water-skied or parasailed in some time, he still enjoys doing a little boating when he gets the chance.
