A commitment to collaboration
To ensure your patients receive superior orthotic, prosthetic and pedorthic services, The Orthotic and Prosthetic Centers are designed to foster close relationships with physicians, therapists and other healthcare providers. Our partnership with a leading manufacturer of orthotic and prosthetic products, as well as our affiliations with Tufts Medical Center (a renowned teaching hospital in Boston, MA) and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital lets us address your patients unique needs and deliver a full spectrum of services.
Our accredited practitioners are dedicated to working closely with you to ensure continuous patient care. You have the flexibility to refer patients to any of our eight convenient locations. In addition, our practitioners are prepared to consult with you, your patient and your colleagues at your office, clinic or hospital setting.
To make certain patients who are undergoing a surgical procedure receive a seamless transition from surgery to recovery, we offer pre and postoperative consultations. We also encourage healthcare professionals to call and discuss their patients requirements whenever the need arises.
At The Orthotic & Prosthetic Centers we provide timely orthotic and prosthetic care to your patient referrals. We make it easy for you and your patient throughout the process and keep you informed and report patient outcomes back to you.

5. The patient is scheduled for a follow-up visit and we report outcomes back to the physician.
Diabetic Shoe Requirements
For Medicare / Medicaid Patients
In order for Medicare/Medicaid to pay for therapeutic shoes or inserts we must follow their strict requirements.
Medicare/Medicaid requires the M.D. or D.O. treating the patient’s diabetes to provide the DME supplier with office visit notes to show the patient meets Medicare/Medicaid Guidelines, and has the medical need for the diabetic footwear.
For your convenience, we have provided a packet with all the documentation the physician needs to complete for your patient.
Its is important that all Medicare / Medicaid requirements are met prior to returning this documentation to our office.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please feel free to call our administrative staff.
