ABOUT US

Specialists in Prosthetics

 

 

    Prosthetics Our approach to prosthetics is unlike any other in the industry. Since our doors opened in 2002, SRT Prosthetics & Orthotics has embraced a simple, yet impactful, philosophy: focus on the whole patient, not just on the amputation. Superior Rehabilitation Techniques (SRT) was founded by Sam Santa-Rita, CP, LP with very specific goals in mind. The entire staff at SRT is committed to maintaining facilities that take pride in providing quality care for amputee patients and their families. Out of all our accomplishments, the relationships we’ve formed with our amputee patients have been the most meaningful. The relationships between the patients and SRT staff quickly change from simply being patient-and-professional to close friends. And when the prosthetists connect and become emotionally invested in their patients’ well-being, their level of care and commitment only grows.

Our Prosthetics are Crafted with Cutting Edge Technology

Being a leader in the prosthetics industry, we invest in cutting edge technology so our patients have the best fitting prosthetics. We recognize that great prosthetics start with the socket. Using the Symphonie Aqua System , we are able to provide our patients with comfortable, well fitting sockets while significantly reducing/eliminating the need for cast modifications and multiple check socket fittings. Once the cast is set, our robotic technology from Motoman Robot will create perfect fitting prosthetics.
