How can I reduce the risk of amputation?

You can practice good foot hygiene and care.  Smoking and other factors can affect the body and decrease valuable circulation required to maintain healthy limbs.  It is important to practice proper safety habits around machinery.  If you have been diagnosis with diabetes, it is very important to check your feet on a daily basis and report any changes to your  physician immediately.  A proper diet and exercise regiment  prescribed by your physician is recommended.  Diabetic shoes and custom insoles are sometimes prescribed by your physician also as a preventative measure.

My physician has informed me that I will be needing an amputation in the near future. Is it too soon to have an initial consultation?

Absolutely not!  In fact, your physician may order that for you prior to your admission to the hospital, or immediately after your surgery.  Many people have consultations before surgery to gain insight and direction for life after the amputation.  Patients should feel free to discuss their concerns and ask questions of their prosthetist.  The relationship between patient and prosthetist will have a vital role in the patient’s future mobility.

How is the decision made on what type of prosthesis I will receive?

Your physician must write a prescription for your leg, however, your certified practitioner has the job of assessing your current requirements for daily life and generating a prosthetic design that will accommodate your individual needs.  Your activity level potential and your weight class will play a vital role in determining the components used to create your custom prosthesis.  Other factors such as your overall health and skin integrity will also help determine your components.


Orthotics and prosthetics are covered under Medicare and most private insurances policies. Our patient account representatives will gladly assist you with your insurance coverage or obtain a Certificate of Medical Necessity from your physician. We will file your insurance claims for you, acquire all necessary documentation and apply for prior approval. We will use our connections through a variety of sources to help those without the necessary insurances to get funding for what they need.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“I’ve received great service from the
staff at above and beyond
orthopedics, LLC. I really liked
that it is a women owned business
and they made me feel really
comfortable and welcome.” I
would recommend family and
friends who are in need of any of
their services to give them a call.

Laura, avid runner who received custom orthotics
I just want to start this off with a huge “Thank You” to YaVonne and all the staff at Above and Beyond
Orthopedics! I started coming to see Miss Money, as I call her, in 2015 and she’s made a few legs for
me since then. She does awesome work, she’s an expert at her craft! The most important thing I
would like to highlight is how easy it is to communicate with her. She’s a great listener and takes my
thoughts and any concerns I have seriously. Then gives me real options to accommodate any specific
things I would like in my potential prosthesis. It’s an understatement to say that I am a bit rough on my
prosthetic legs. Between work and all the time I spend hiking on disc golf courses I really put my legs
through their paces. So I need them to be very durable, which Miss Money accommodates . I do still
occasionally damage my leg but I don’t worry about it too much because I know that I can call Above
and Beyond and they will get me in quickly to repair any damage I’ve done. If I could sum my
experience with Above and Beyond Orthopedics up with one sentence it would go like this. These are
GREAT people doing GREAT things for anyone who walks through their door!
