POA Client Luis Alberto Arias, AK Amputee, traveled from Colombia to see us

POA sees clients from all over the world, which is how Luis Alberto Arias learned of us. After recovering from an above knee amputation due to complications from an arterial thrombosis, he began to research and learn about different prosthetic technologies. In this search, Luis Alberto met María García, the last victim found after the 2003 El Nogal Club bombing. Maria, a long-time POA client, referred him to us. The following article, published in Jet-Set magazine (Colombia’s equivalent to Us Magazine in the United States) contains photos of Luis Alberto and his family throughout his treatment at our facility: Click Here To View Article

Above Knee Amputee Colin Cook Competing in 2016 Stance ISA World Surfing Championship

colinsurfIn  October 2015, POA client Colin Cook lost his leg above the knee to a shark while surfing in Hawaii. All goals have obstacles to overcome. We all have things standing in our way. They can often seem insurmountable, but with enough perseverance we can usually get around them. Over the past year, Colin has put a tremendous amount of effort into his rehab and it has really paid off. This week, strong and confident, he will be competing in the ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship in La Jolla, California! (see following link) 2016 Stance ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship
