AMPUTEES INSPIRE OTHERS TO RISE ABOVE ADVERSITY.

POI PATIENT STORIES

At POI, we believe in our patients. We believe that their stories can be an inspiration to other patients faced with this unimaginable challenge of limb loss.
We want to be intentional in sharing our patients’ stories of courage, and hope, not just for new prosthetic patients but for each of us.
Watch the brief videos below to gain insight, guidance, and inspiration as our patients share their stories with our Chief Inspiration Officer, Russ Sorrells.
