My name is Jaco Deist and I have been creating and fitting prostheses for over 25 years. There are countless reasons why this profession has been, and always will be, my greatest passion.
There is nothing more fulfilling than fitting an amputee with a prosthetic that can help them walk comfortably again, or perform daily tasks with ease. Even after 25 years, this is still an overwhelming, indescribable feeling – not just for me, but for all of my patients. Over the years, I have cultivated incredible relationships with so many amputees; they came to me as patients, but are now valued friends.
I have completed the prosthetic journey with many amputees and their families. I understand what you’re going through; the feeling of loss, the uncertainty, and the fear. I want you to know that I will be here for every part of your journey, and I will do everything in my power to ensure that you get the treatment that you deserve.
There isn’t a project that has been too big or complicated for me to handle. Once I’ve gotten to know you, and how you want to live your life, we can get started on moving towards your goals. I absolutely love being the guide who can help you navigate this exciting journey ahead!
I have witnessed so many incidents where an amputation becomes the turning point in life. This turning point can, and will, propel you to a place that you’ve never imagined being; a place where you will push your limits and discover your true potential to make it through anything.
So, my message is that with time, a fighting spirit, some help from me and your prosthesis, you can live life to the fullest. There is life after an amputation, and we can make it happen, together.
