Above Knee Amputee
For Evelyn, an above knee amputee, finding a place that listened to her and made her feel comfortable was extremely important to her and her husband. She wanted a place that was going to work with her to find out about her wants and desires – someone who was going to help her get back to living her life.
“When you go through something like this, you need a place that you’re comfortable with, and Fourroux just become an extended family.” says Evelyn. “They gave us a tour and showed us how everything would be done. They handled all the insurance so I didn’t have to worry about that.”
Unsure of the process of getting a prosthesis, she welcomed being shown everything and how it worked. She was involved in getting her prosthesis made. But what surprised Evelyn most was that she would be up and walking sooner than she thought.
“The first fitting, I came in and they did a plaster cast. I was here all day but I left with a leg on the very first day, which I thought was amazing!” exclaimed Evelyn. “I wasn’t expecting to get one the first day but I came in a wheelchair and I left walking out.”
Asked if she had the opportunity to share with others her experience with Fourroux Prosthetics to other amputees, this is what Evelyn would say;
“They take care of me and they’re here any time I need them,” says Evelyn. “They really do care. From the receptionist, all the way up. Everybody cares. It’s family. You can tell that they genuinely care about their patients. They give you hope. And then they help you fulfill that.”
