Peak Prosthetic Performance Clinic:


David R. Sickles CPO, CPed.
Creator of the Peak Prosthetic Performance Clinic

It is estimated that more than 1.7 million people in the United States are living with limb loss and one out of every 200 people in America has had an amputation. But many amputees are not getting the healthcare services they need and deserve.  Amputees are more often getting lost in a healthcare system that has increasingly reduced the amount of rehabilitation time and medical support allotted to patients.  The Peak Prosthetic Performance Clinic is a one-time opportunity for amputees who have suffered a limb loss to be heard and evaluated.
