Our History

Our Story

The vision by our founders to start their own prosthetic company began as a conversation nearly fifteen years ago. Those first conversations began to take shape as a plan that finally came to fruition in 2009 when Premier Prosthetics first opened its doors at our location in Creve Coeur.

Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics was founded with that first vision to do what we know best; to take care of our patients. Having a direct impact on the patient’s quality of life is our passion and it is our priority to provide the highest level of convenience and care. It is this simple commitment to our patients that allows us to rise above others in the industry.
At Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics we believe that by incorporating a multidisciplinary approach, the patient has a much greater success rate. This is why we maintain close relationships with our referring physicians. From the initial pre-prosthetic consult to the delivery of prosthetic devices we are not only there for our patient, but also in direct contact with all members of their medical team. Most importantly, we are directly involved with the patient during the day to day follow up that is needed in the adaptation to a new prosthetic device.
Our office is certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics and an affiliate of the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association. All of our practitIoners hold ABC and AOPA certifications.

Beginning with your initial contact with our caring staff and state-of-the-art facility, you will see our passion and understand why we chose to pursue our founders' dreams.

At Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics we will always be committed to your satisfaction.

Technology

K-Level determines the type of technology and componentry available to the patient
What are K-Levels?
Medicare established K levels to assist physicians, prosthetists and physical/occupational therapists in quantification of need and the potential benefit of prosthetics devices for patients after lower limb amputation
K-LEVELS – WHO DECIDES?
MD role – writes the prescription, considers impact of other health conditions, refer as needed
PT/OT role – documentation of prior/current level of function and any other aspects of this patient which may help or hinder use of prosthesis
Prosthetist role –assess and treat the physical and functional limitations of people with limb amputations. Prosthetists are trained to prescribe, design, fit and monitor prostheses to meet the ability and life goals of the patient.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER FOR K-LEVEL DETERMINATION
General health, comorbidities
Weight
Anticipated activity level and types of activities
Payor Source
Motivation
Cosmesis
Residual limb factors – length/shape, scar, quality of skin, stability
