Prosthetics Orthotics and Mastectomy Garments
Easily defined as referring to “replacement”, can be something as simple as a missing finger or as elaborate as legs, arms, hands, or feet. The prosthesis must be comfortable, sturdy, attractive, lightweight and most importantly, the appropriate prescription for the patient. The relationship between a prosthetist and a patient is a life-long affair and requires more than just technical expertise. (...more)

In the beginning, the company’s primary focus was prosthetics, the fabrication and fitting of artificial limbs. However, in 1996, realizing a need to become more visible following that very traumatic time, post-mastectomy services were added as another specialty. Pippa knew that when you get women talking you’ve got it “goin’on”. Then, in 1997, a dream of Bruce’s was fulfilled with the addition of orthotics, the fabrication and fitting of devices designed to assist impaired joints and limbs. By 2002, the time had arrived for a larger facility. Once again, knocking on doors and punching telephone numbers, the business leased a four- thousand- square- foot building that required much re-modeling to suit the needs of the ever-growing company, now located at 2501 Hendersonville Road. From 1500 square feet to 4000 square feet was like manna from heaven. But, nothing is forever………and in 2007 the leased building was sold. BUT….good things continue to come from bad.

Shaun and Pippa breathe in very deeply every day in wonderment as to how they arrived at this place…………………ever mindful of where they have been
