This week, we sat down with the wonderful staff of De La Torre Orthotics and Prosthetics to discuss the relationship between the patient who has recently undergone an amputation and their prosthetist. De La Torre O&P is a family-run company based in Pittsburgh, PA and is currently led by owner Ed De La Torre. In this episode, Ed shares the story behind the founding of De La Torre O&P, and we interview Drew Buffat, a prosthetist with De La Torre O&P and Brian Moser, current social media organizer for De La Torre and below-the-knee amputee. Brian and Drew speak openly about the times of joy, difficulty, and uncertainty that they have faced as a team working together over the past several years.

In this episode we touch on:

  • The history behind the founding of De La Torre O&P
  • How Drew became a part of the De La Torre O&P team and how Brian found De La Torre O&P
  • Brian's story of undergoing an amputation and the transition into navigating the world with a prosthetic leg
  • Brian's physical and emotional journey from amputation to walking again
  • Drew and Brian's relationship and the ins and outs of what both the prosthetist and amputee go through during sock fittings, adjustments, and functional movement assessments
  • De La Torre's vision for the future and the future of prosthetics
