Patient Victories & Education

Matt’s Why

We asked our very own, Matt Ruengert, CP. LP., why he chose this career and what motivates him.
Matt shared, “I do this because I love working with people. You never get the same issue twice in a day. Plus, I like working with my hands and don’t like sitting behind a desk. I like being up and talking and interacting with people Likes talking and interacting with people. Sharing patient victories each day with everyone’s unique story.” You will often find Matt with plaster on his pants and shoes from being in the workshop, and this is one of the things that makes Matt very authentic and relatable.
Matt has been with Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics since June of 2013, and we are very thankful for everything he does for us and our patients.

Educating Our Patients to Thrive

Our team is passionate about educating our patients, this is an essential part of our patient care plan. There are so many things that a patient will need to know in order to take the best care of themselves and their prosthetic.
Fortunately, being a part of the BCP Group opens the door to even more resources and educational videos that we get to share with you. Make sure to follow us on social media to see what incredible videos we have available, such as “Preparing the Patient for a Prosthesis,” “Acute Rehab Recommendations,” “Components Linked to K-Levels" and more!
Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics prioritizes advancements in technology and improving our practices, and we enjoy sharing that with you. You may have seen our on-site live video on social media where we introduce Aqua Casting and its unique benefits compared to a traditional casting method. This method supports finding an even more exact form with the ability to be weight-bearing on the residual limb, this way we get to see how the socket is going to fit. This is vital because a residual limb takes a different shape when weight-bearing compared to sitting.
Every patient that visits us is different, and receives the best care unique to their goals, medical plan, and lifestyle.

Celebrating Patient Wins

Our team finds such joy being a part of your story and sharing memories along the way. One special story that continues to bring a smile to all of our faces is our patient, Jasmine and her incredible shout out from baseball legend, Ozzie Smith. Making moments like these possible inspires us every day, and our team is very thankful to Ozzie Smith for his community support. Celebrating our patients’ wins, whether a celebrity message of support, patient running a 5k, patient returning to their hobbies post-recovery, are all monumental and a highlight of our practice.
The Amputation and Prosthetic process can be very challenging for our patients, that is why we create lasting relationships with our patients to be a pillar of support throughout their journey. There are many milestones our patients make, and one of the most impactful for those with lower-limb difference, are their first steps with their prosthetic. Our patients are like our family, so just like Rochelle, Premier Prosthetics and Orthotics is with you every step of the way during recovery and treatment. We take pride in providing the highest level of patient care, and patients like Rochelle and Jasmine encourage us to continue to lead the industry.
