Derek is an Ohio-licensed, ABC-certified prosthetist/orthotist based at Hanger Clinic in Lancaster, Ohio. He loves the O&P field because he has the ability to help ensure each patient leaves the clinic with an increased quality of life.
Derek provides a variety of O&P care, including lower extremity prosthetics and cranial remolding orthoses. When it comes to treating cranial asymmetry patients, he draws on his experience as a father of three to ease parents’ nerves and address their questions. A smiling infant receiving cranial remolding treatment makes any day better.
Outside of work, Derek enjoys spending time with his family and attending the many sporting events that they participate in. Derek also sits on the O&P licensure board for Ohio.
