Gomez Orthotic System (GOSS) for Spinal Deformities now available at POA

We are pleased to add a new patient care service to our list of specialties at POA. Gomez Orthotic Systems, located in St. Petersburg, Florida, has begun treating patients with abnormal curvatures of the spine in our Orlando office. The GOSS method, created by Jose Miguel Gomez, MD, is a unique conservative treatment for spine deformities. This method puts an emphasis on the importance of providing optimum overall spinal balance and stability. For further information and appointment availability, please refer to the Gomez Orthotic Systems website: Gomez Orthotic Systems

Alex, Hip-Disarticulate Amputee, has a Near-Perfect Gait!

Alex became a hip-disarticulate amputee after a horrific workplace accident. When he arrived at POA a few weeks ago he was getting around as best he could using a prosthesis that was outdated and limited his mobility. We fit him with a NPS vacuum assisted socket system and a C-Leg microprocessor knee, and soon he was walking with confidence–and a near-perfect gait! Today he flew home to Mexico, eager to get back to doing all the things he once enjoyed. ‪#‎NoBoundaries‬
