Bob Osborn of Lampe is being fitted for a new prosthetic limb and is thankful to receive care closer to home. He’s one of the first patients at CoxHealth’s new Prosthetics and Orthotics clinic now open in Branson.
“It’s so handy to make a short trip for the help I need,” he says. “Everyone is so nice and knows their stuff!”
The clinic’s team of certified prosthetists, orthotists, assistants and fitters work closely with the patient and the patient’s provider to achieve perfect fits and solutions in a timely manner.
“Giving folks this strong resource right here at home is going to be huge in their wellness journey,” says Chris Cobb, clinic manager. “We become part of their care team and collaborate with their doctor to give these patients the best outcome.”
The clinic offers all forms of above- and below-the-knee prosthetic care, including:
- Partial foot – chopart and toe fillers
- Symes amputations
- Transtibial – below knee
- Knee Disarticulation
- Transfemoral – above knee

For patients who need orthotics and bracing, the clinic offers both custom and prefabricated care with regard to:
- Diabetic shoes and inserts
- Custom shoes and shoe modifications
- Foot orthotics
- Spine and back
- Upper extremity orthoses – wrist and elbow
- Comprehensive pediatric services, including cranial remolding helmets
