Able II Orthotics & Prosthetics was established in Watertown, South Dakota in 1997 with a goal of establishing the finest quality orthotics & prosthetics in the region. In 1998, we expanded to Lincoln, Nebraska, where we provided services to patients at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital. Since that time, Able II has expanded it’s care to areas as far reaching as western Nebraska and northern South Dakota.
The professional staff at Able II recognizes that each patient’s orthotic and prosthetic needs are unique. Yet, there are concerns that are common to everyone. Among those is the desire for continuous follow-up care throughout the course of their treatment and rehabilitation. Because Able II is open five days a week, and has an on-call service for holidays, weekends and off-hours, we are ready to provide services whenever needed. We’re always available to provide adjustments, make repairs, or simply to answer questions… all at the convenience of our patients.
Our staff offers a full range of O&P services and welcomes patients of all ages, from infants to senior citizens. Our professional staff includes orthotists, who are specialists in devices used to support, align, correct or prevent deformities or to improve body function. We also have prosthetists on staff, who specialize in the design and use of artificial limbs.
Our orthotists are experienced in treating patients with hundreds of different diagnoses, from foot disorders and sports injuries to neuromuscular disorders, fractures, scoliosis, spina bifida and cerebral palsy. Our highly trained prosthetists offer a variety of services ranging from sports prostheses to devices for congenital and pediatric amputees. Our O&P practitioners use the latest scientific advances in technics and materials to create and custom fit devices.
From the initial evaluation to long-term follow-up care, our practitioners will oversee each patient’s care. Working in conjunction with a referring physician, our O&P practitioner will perform a thorough evaluation, taking into account a patient’s habits, lifestyle and goals before designing an orthotic or prosthetic device. The orthotist or prosthetist will take measurements and may require several follow-up appointments with the patient for fittings and adjustments to the device.
