These Patients Have Their Say:
“Is 780 miles—round trip—per visit worth it to see your prosthetist?”
“For me… Heck Yes!
Why? Because when I was 19, I was in a major motorcycle accident and lost my leg below the knee. That was 34 years ago and since then I have been to over five prosthetic facilities.
Anyway, I lived in Michigan and Ohio during that time and have been to almost every prosthetic facility in the Ohio/Southern Michigan area looking for the perfect fitting prostheses.
And sadly, for most of the 34 years, I’d been having a lot of problems and frustrations with all my prostheses and the clinics that were suppose to be helping me. My leg almost always hurt really really bad and bled on and off and was very painful.
Luckily for me, I found and started seeing Jeff at Ropp Orthopedic Clinic.
Yes, I was skeptical at first, then Jeff looked at my leg and started asked me many personal questions about what I liked and didn’t like with the last legs. We talked about my past history and frustration of not getting a good fitting leg for so many years.
Jeff had a few new ideas and together we came up with a plan for a new leg.
Jeff made the leg, I tested it out for a few weeks and really liked it. It was very comfortable. And the best part is it fit my lifestyle and what I love doing.
I’m a farmer and a woodworker and I wanted a leg I didn’t have to keep adjusting all day long. I was tired of having to take my sleeve down and add socks and then pull the leg back up. With this new leg, I didn’t have do it anymore.
And, guess what else? My new leg has a walnut wood looking outer covering! And being a woodworker, it’s really cool!
I’m excited to be able to do the things I love and especially being able to build my business. I really enjoy working with Ropp Orthopedic Clinic and having a pain free prosthesis. This is the reason I travel all of those miles, because I can now do so many more things, it’s truly amazing.
“Thanks Jeff, almost overnight you’ve changed my life for the better. I couldn’t be more happy and excited.”Jim Beardsley
“Jeff is a real detailed person, is just the right personality to be fitting me for one a prosthetic limb.
Jeff is also an inventor, he worked on my wheelchair so my leg would be more comfortable while sitting.
Jeff was awesome. My knee need does not bend and my leg had problems with rubbing back of my leg.
Jeff cut the prosthetic leg to get the fit just right.
Jeff loves what he is doing and he is not happy until you are completely satisfied.”C. Burkard
“If your prosthetic leg doesn’t fit correctly you can’t walk very well, so Jeff keeps working to make everything right.
Jeff does a great job, and wonderful to work with. He never gives up. Always spends as much time as a takes to make you comfortable in your prosthetic and makes sure it’s just right.
Hope I don’t ever have to recommend him for orthopedic needs, “but” if I should, I certainly would put him at the top of the list. Great guy and great service.”J. Endres

Why does my prosthesis almost always hurt?
There can be many reasons a prosthesis hurts.
If your limb is in good shape and there are not any underlying problems, like bone spurs, infections or neuromas, then your socket should fit perfect without pain or discomfort.
Many times this can be a sizing and fitting issue.
Sometimes the socket shape doesn’t fit the limb properly and hurts when you put weight on the limb.
There are many many different ways to get your socket to fit properly and we will explore these options with you during your evaluation.
Can I walk “normal” with prosthesis?
It depends on many factors:
- How long ago you had your amputation.
- The reason for your amputation.
- Whether you have an above the knee or below the knee prosthesis.
- What physical shape are you in.
- Even having a comfortable prosthesis doesn’t guarantee you will be able to walk “normal.”
You may need physical therapy, including gait training and limb strengthening.
Much of it depends on how motivated you are to want to walk normal again!
And please keep in mind, “Fear is a disease and hope is the only cure.”
