Alabama Orthotics & Prosthetics was founded in 1977 by Jerry O. Swanson. Jerry is an above knee amputee who lost his left leg at the young age of 16. Since the age of 17, Jerry has dedicated himself to making a difference in the lives of patients with physical challenges.
Alabama Orthotics & Prosthetics has seven locations in Alabama and Mississippi. We have over 13 certified and/or licensed practitioners who help patients and their families with the life changing experience and education of wearing a prosthesis or or thosis. Alabama Orthotics & Prosthetics employs five amputees, which gives us unique insight and knowledge that is helpful to our patients. In addition to orthotics and prosthetics we offer counseling to patients and their families.
