History

Under new ownership and management, Orthotic and Prosthetic Associates Inc. became PPS Orthotic & Prosthetic Services (the “company”) in March, 2006. Established in 1994, the company has provided the tri-state area with innovative prosthetic and orthotic devices – designed around the lifestyle the patient wishes to maintain or recapture. Our clinical specialists have a combined 130 years experience in solving complex functional problems.

Our practitioners are certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics and are licensed in Tennessee and Georgia. We maintain a rigorous schedule of continuing education to insure that we are on the cutting edge of prosthetic and orthotic design.

Several of our practitioners hold faculty positions at various universities including The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Georgia Tech. Our fabrication facility is located on site, where most of the products we design are custom fabricated by our experienced technical staff.
