Coinciding with its 100th year anniversary this year, the University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center (UMOPC), Ann Arbor, has undergone $1.2 million in renovations that have helped the center nearly double the size of its waiting room, increase the number of clinic exam rooms, and add therapy rooms, office and supply rooms, and peer counseling rooms. The center has seen a 32 percent increase in outpatient visits over the last five years, and the extra space will allow more physicians, orthotists, and prosthetists to see more patients every day at the center, which now sees roughly 25,000 to 30,000 visits a year.

“There are limited places where people can get their prosthetic and orthotic needs met. Most places are private,” said James A. Leonard Jr., MD, University of Michigan clinical professor, physical medicine and rehabilitation, in a university press release. “This center is among the few university-based facilities in the country that offer comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic services with a multidisciplinary approach to care.”
