About Tim

Limb Difference: Traumatic

Type: BKA, Left Leg

Sport: Strength Training

Tim understands the pain and frustration of amputation. As an 18-year-old, he was on the wrong end of a hunting mishap that cost him his left leg below the knee. Today, Tim is an experienced pedorthotist whose mission is to help improve the quality of life for his patients at Hanger Prosthetics and Orthotics in Herrin, IL

At his job, Tim uses new technologies to evaluate the needs of his patients and custom fit them for an artificial limb or orthotic device. He says that the most rewarding aspect of the business is watching a child adapt to their new surroundings. New technology means that it is much easier to get a good, intimate fit of a prosthesis for his patients.
