Our purpose

For more than 25 years, Alpha-Omega Orthotics & Prosthetics has been seeking ways to alleviate the emotional distress and the physical limitations that injury, pain and amputation can bring. We understand the hurt, fear, pain, and anxiety that comes when faced with using a prosthetic or orthotic device. 

At Alpha-Omega, we welcome the opportunity to explore new technologies and develop systems for our patients that will meet their specific needs. We do this with the utmost care, compassion, respect, and timely service. 

Alpha-Omega continually reviews and improves our procedures, working to meet the highest quality and industry standards in the field. Our skill and commitment to excellence is vitally important to producing top-of-the-line custom products for our patients.

Our staff is accredited by the American Board of Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC) and the Board of Certification (BOC).
