“It has always been our philosophy from the beginning to focus on the patient as a whole; not just the part that’s missing”.

JAMES DIXON, PATIENT EMISSARY
Since our doors first opened in 2002, our company has been built on the philosophy to focus on the patient as a whole, not just the part that’s missing. In addition to our prosthetic and orthotic services, SRT is proud to offer a free mentoring program for any amputee and their friends and family. It is always important for the patient to surround themselves with people who will support and challenge them, while offering an empathetic ear. SRT provides peer counseling before and after amputation from our prosthetists, like-minded fellow amputees, and our new Patient Emissary, James Dixon.

Motivational speaker and Ossur Champion, James became a amputee at age 11. As an adolescent, Dixon attended Highland High School where he didn’t make the varsity basketball team. That rejection became his fuel to prove that he had no limitations. This determination has resulted in a college basketball scholarship, powerlifting records, modeling contracts and a lifelong passion for the limb loss community. We look forward with his passion to mentor to and change the lives of our patients! His journey can be followed @supermanis4real on Instagram and can be reached at james.dixon@srtpo.net or 317.416.4319

MARK WHITE, PATIENT LIAISON

Mark grew up in Westfield, Indiana and graduated from IUPUI with a focus on motorsports engineering.

“I worked in a professional motorsport environment for 5 years before joining SRT”, said Mark “I enjoy riding and racing my own motorcycles, as well as anything else mechanical. I was involved in a motorcycle accident Labor Day weekend of 2016, resulting in two broken arms and severe lacerations to my right leg. This led to amputation below the knee several days later. I made the decision so I could return to my normal day to day activities and not be limited by a non-functional limb. Recovery went well but was delayed slightly until both of my arms had healed. I progressed through therapy and was back up and walking by the end of the year. My goal was to make enough progress to ride on the opening track day of April 2017. A few months later, I went back to racing and haven’t stopped since”. “Since becoming an amputee, I have wanted to help others facing what I have been through. Having another amputee to talk to was one of the best resources available to me. I want to give back to the community and help as many fellow amputees as possible”.
