Prosthetics

Vancouver Orthopedic Group provides comprehensive prosthetic services for amputees of all types and levels, including both children and adults. We enjoy the privilege of working with special people who have overcome profound physical challenges, and are committed to helping them live active, comfortable, and fulfilling lives. Our certified prosthetists, with their many years of experience, are accomplished at providing devices that meet each amputee’s needs, enabling him or her to return to favourite activities and to try new activities he or she may not have considered before.

We have seen many changes in prosthetic technology, and keep up with the latest advancements in order to provide our patients with the most appropriate technologies for their needs. We have extensive experience with computerized C-leg microprocessor technology, myoelectric arm prosthetics, and advanced socket design. New materials and components are only the start, though—our unparalleled craftsmanship, attention to detail, experience, and commitment to patient satisfaction ensure that every prosthesis fits and functions perfectly, according to the patient’s needs and expectations.


I have been a patient at VOG for 10 years and the most impressive attribute of this company is that everyone from the receptionists, the prosthetic and orthotics technicians and office staff work together like a well oiled machine which empowers an atmosphere of harmony for the attending patients to make the transition to being an amputee, which is a very emotional time, a more comfortable journey.

I lost my leg above the knee about 8 years ago. My accident was in Italy and once I returned home to Vancouver and got the stitches out, VOG was my first stop. They are a team, that was obvious from the start. And they all work well and work together to make the process as quick, smart and seamless as possible. I’m an active guy, a high-level user, and a cyclist. I have high expectations and yet demand that I’m able to live my life using just one prosthesis. The team at VOG understood that from the start and have always given me the best solution and listened to my suggestions as to how we might, together, make a better leg for exactly my needs. I’ve got that now and I’m a happy camper. In closing though, and I think this is very important; through their vast experience they know that once an amputee has gained mobility, he’s loathe to give it up!
They do everything humanly possible to keep you out of pain and on the move regardless of what it takes. Bravo VOG!
