The VOG are comprised of experienced O/Ps that are sensitive to my needs. The team really listens to what I feel is important as a hemipelvectomy amputee. My type of amputation is extremely high up and very difficult for a prosthetic professional to fit well.

My socket was carefully casted while I was suspended to calculate the weight bearing areas that would interface with my trunk. The team got it right and my socket fits like a glove and comfortably (key word) around my trunk enabling me to weight bear effectively. I wear my prosthesis mainly for standing (cooking and on the computer) and for short distance walking. I was never pressured to feel wearing my leg in these situations only was a failure. The team knew it takes 200% more energy to walk any distance with a prosthesis as a hemipelvectomy amputee. The team also knew, that if I wasn’t wearing my prosthesis all day, I would need another device to keep my pelvis level while sitting. That was also beautifully fabricated and I wear it not only for sitting, but also for bike riding and boating. I would highly recommend this prosthetic and orthotic company to anyone seeking P and O professionals with a high level skill base and practical experience that provide great follow-up and stand behind their work. This is one of the best facilities for innovative designs, integrity in the quality of craftsmanship and a staff that have the ability to really listen to their customer.

About 22 years ago, I had my right leg amputated below the knee. I live in the interior and for the first 10 years everything was okay with only needing adjustments periodically. Then the stump broke down and the powers to be could not figure out what was wrong with the prosthesis. They gave it their best shot but being a house wife I needed to be mobile.

I have always admired the courage of Terry Fox so when a friend mentioned their daughter’s father-in-law went to Ben Speicher at Vancouver Orthopedic Group, I was interested in meeting the man who made Terry’s artificial legs. My family doctor gave me a referral for which I am forever grateful. Ben and the staff have kept me mobile and have also fabricated back and leg braces to keep me walking. Unfortunately my fittings sometimes do not go smoothly, due to multiple complicated medical conditions, but these people are very patient and stick with it until the job is finished.
I hold these people in high esteem and will be eternally grateful for all they have done for me. My heartfelt thanks also go to the receptionists who always get me an appointment even on short notice.

I was fitted with a custom right leg brace for severe pain in my ankle joint. The brace fits excellent, the service was great and I am very happy with the outcome. I am pain free for the first time in years!
