Odds and Ends

Our first ampuTEA party was a success. The intimate setting allowed fellow patients to meet, to share stories and to laugh. Real life experiences as well as tips and suggestions were freely exchanged. Our "party goers" decided to meet again and scheduled the next ampuTEA party for May 25th at 3:00. We invite you to attend.

It is important to remember that the ampuTEA party is not a support group. It is a supportive group of amputees who would like to foster friendships, to learn from others and to share their experiences. Simply put, the ampuTEA party is an opportunity for amputee women to meet, talk and have a good time. As always, tea and cookies will be provided.

On May 19th we are hosting our first Proprio Day. If you are a below knee amputee who is interested in experiencing bionic technology, this event might be for you. We will have a Proprio foot available for patient trial. Please contact our office to determine if you are a candidate and to schedule your Proprio appointment. Slots are filling up quickly. If you have ever been curious about how a computerized ankle might improve your prosthetic experience, you don't want to miss this opportunity.

Tomorrow we will be announcing the current standings in our Biggest Loser competition. Our weight loss warriors have been working hard and shedding a huge number of pounds. Check the blog tomorrow (and be prepared to be inspired by their accomplishments).

At OPC we are striving to meet the needs of our patients. If you would like to suggest an activity or seminar that you think would benefit our patients, please let us know. You can contact me directly at or comment on this blog. We want to know how we can help you achieve your goals!
