We don’t settle for good-enough service. We excel.

At Excel, we realize that each person has different circumstances, needs, goals, fears, and hopes. So our team of certified practitioners and technicians will design just the right prosthetic or orthotic device to make a perfect fit. Both physically and emotionally.


You’re on a journey you may never have expected to take. How you deal with a disability is as unique as you are. That’s why we place so much emphasis on individual care.

We’ve been providing patients with technologically superior and quality-crafted prosthetic limbs, braces, and full support systems with the goal of helping each patient reach the highest possible level of mobility and independence, regardless of the disability.

More than 30 years of improving patients’ quality of life.

Shortly after completing his undergraduate degree, Doug Walters had the opportunity to work with patients needing prosthetics and orthotics. He quickly realized that he had found his lifework, and returned to graduate school for further training.

He recognized that our region needed a prosthetics company as fully committed to its patients’ emotional challenges as to their physical needs. That led him to establish Excel Prosthetics and Orthotics in 1978.

The company has grown due to its innovative products and absolute commitment to customer comfort and satisfaction. There are now seven Excel offices in three states. But we will never get too large to provide each individual the attention they deserve during one of the most difficult times of their lives.

That’s why we come to work each day. That’s now our lifework.

All certified practitioners. All certified technicians.

Each Excel practitioner who sees patients is certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics. That means they’ve met stringent education requirements, passed rigorous certification examinations, and complete mandatory continuing education programs.
