Patrick Davis age 53 of Vassar, Michigan never expected to be able to walk his daughter, Kasey, down the aisle last spring, and he certainly didn’t expect to dance at her wedding. An Amputee since 2010, Patrick has spent the last nine years in a wheelchair and on crutches after developing a serious bone infection from many injuries to his left leg.
Continuing health problems took away his livelihood as a foundry millwright and constant pain zapped his energy and hope for his future. After developing abscesses in his begin January 2011, another amputation followed, two inches higher.
But those once in a lifetime wedding memory were made possible because of Mike Bugg, a second-generation Prosthetist, Orthotist, and Pedorthoist with 40 years’ experience and owner of Orthotech Prosthetics & Orthotics with 5 Michigan locations.
Patrick has heard about Mike’s skill and experience with prosthetics in two encounters with other amputees he saw who were easily walking without pain, including a double amputee during a weekend in August 2018. After asking where they got their prosthetic legs, he was told to Call Mike Bugg at Orthotech."
