VSA Prosthetics was established in 2016 for the sole purpose of improving the lives of those suffering from limb loss and ensuring the highest level of care. Our team of 11 vascular surgeons are committed to learning and implementing the latest and most advanced surgical techniques to maximize prosthetic outcomes. By putting our patients first, we believe that by uniting our efforts directly alongside our experienced Prosthetist, cases can be discussed in advance in order to determine the best surgery and prosthetic design to carry out with the individual’s goals in mind. We know first-hand the significant impact this has on improving the patient’s ability to not just walk again, but to live his or her life to the highest quality of life. We are confident in this unique approach to prosthetic care and aim to revolutionize amputee care as a whole.
Our Complete Care Process unites our Vascular Surgeons trained in advanced amputation techniques with our experienced Prosthetist to thoughtfully and carefully customize your care. Our team watches over your healing process and equips you for future prosthetic success. Together, we then design your future prosthetic limbs that will allow you to reach all of the goals that you hope to achieve. Continued and follow-up care include direct access to on-site vascular surgeons, along with regular Amputee Care Group meetings that will provide on-going support to our patients and their loved ones with education, knowledge, and emotional support.Our Complete Care Process
Eric began his studies at the University of Florida majoring in Engineering Science with a minor in Biomechanics. He went on to graduate from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Master’s degree in Prosthetics & Orthotics. He has been managing prosthetic clinics since 2008 and has extensive experience treating pediatric, adult, and geriatric populations.
Eric specializes in socket design and comfort, advanced gait training, and motivating his patients to achieve their highest level of mobility through hard work and emphasizes long-term success. He strongly believes in developing a rehabilitation program and prosthetic design around each individual’s desires and needs. He believes each patient’s potential is best achieved through the integration of patient, prosthesis, physical therapist, and family/friends.
Kara joined our team shortly after the opening of our clinic. She brings over 20 years of experience in the medical field, including her degree in Healthcare Management. Her range of experience in podiatry, family medicine, and office management elevates the level of administrative excellence here at VSA Prosthetics.
After experiencing his own below-knee amputation, Chad was focused on getting his life back. In the process, he realized how valuable a peer advisor would be to meet with individuals going through this most difficult process. That’s when he joined VSA Prosthetics with a passion to help anyone along the way. Chad assists in the fabrication of prostheses, acts as an assistant to our prosthetist, and most importantly spends time with patients to help educate them on their future potential, what to expect, trouble-shooting prosthetic fitting issues, teaching sock and volume management, and encouraging them to succeed in life. Chad also participates in our quarterly Amputee Care Group meetings.
