Nathan Sutti CPO, CTPO, LPO / CEO is a certified orthotic and prosthetic practitioner and a certified technician within the orthotic and prosthetic filed.
In 1998, he was involved in a motorcycle accident resulting in a right leg amputation above the knee. Nathan’s life at that moment changed, but little did he know that this adversity would make him into the man he is today. He quickly began to volunteer at a local prosthetic office where he started his career path. It is interesting that his sister at the age of 6 was also in an automobile accident with numerous injuries and Nathan was constantly taken along to orthotic appointments to address her paralysis. Thus, the experience of watching his sister struggle to learn to walk again with orthotics, and his own struggle to walk with a new prosthesis provided Nathan with the ultimate desire to help others in similar situations.
Nathan first attended Spokane Falls technician program and earned his certification as an orthotic and prosthetic technician in 2001. Nathan wanted more from his career and so he moved to Texas and attended UT Southwestern medical center, graduating at the top of his class in 2009. He completed his residencies at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children and at UT Southwestern.
For most of his career he has been taking care of pediatric patients. While providing care to pediatric patients Nathan discovered that there was no light weight and adjustable orthotic device on the market that truly helped patients walk better by assisting with their weak lower limb muscles. This observation led to his invention of the Bounder Modular Dynamic AFO – which is continuing to help kids and young adults reach their goals.
Nathan is now focusing on sharing his knowledge by fabricating and fitting devices to the specific needs of each patient. He understands that we sometimes need to think outside the box in order to provide the very best device for a patient. Nathan can empathize and care for those he treats, because he too is a patient, and understands that the devices we fabricate help on a day to day basis.
