I cannot say enough about the professional care and treatment I received at Pelican. Kenny and his staff made me feel as though I was his only patient, working to ensure a proper fit and comfort throughout my prosthetic experience. At Pelican I was able to overcome doubts about my life after age 70 with a prosthetic, to one where I believed in what (and how) I could accomplish. Kenny shared many of his own personal experiences along with tips for day-to-day activities. I highly recommend Pelican Orthotics and Prosthetics to anyone who has lost a limb.

I met Kenny Capritto in January of 2007 after my below-the-knee amputation surgery which was the result of an awful vehicle crash. The encouragement I received from Kenny gave me renewed hope that I would walk again and in a short period of time. Shortly thereafter, in his office, I took my first steps with the new prosthesis he made. I have reviewed and spoken with others of his profession, but none are his equal. Kenny is formally educated and engages in continuing education to stay at the top of his profession. He is very patient-centered in every way from running the business side of his practice to providing the devices that are necessary to be able to engage in a meaningful and productive life. I have never been dissatisfied, quite the contrary. I highly recommend Mr. Capritto to you.

Exercises for Life at Home

When the wound has healed sufficiently, the muscles can be stretched and further strengthened. Gait training with the prosthesis can now begin.
