Pinnacle Orthotics & Prosthetics is located at 5959 Shallowford Rd., Suite 215, just off Highway 153 in the Shallowford Business Park West complex. We are part of a group of dedicated clinical practitioners who possess many specialized orthotic and prosthetic skills with almost 100 years of combined clinical experience! Our clinicians serve in a variety of leadership positions within the profession, participate regularly in continuing education to maintain clinical proficiency and serve as adjunct faculty for universities around the country to further the knowledge base in our profession and those of other Allied Health professions.
Our facility is privileged to participate in the care of you or your loved one. We employ only certified and licensed clinical practitioners who are orthotists and prosthetists, not assistants or technicians. Our clinic team will evaluate you completely and determine what device best suits your individual functional needs. We will work closely with your physician and therapists to insure that our care compliments theirs and provides you with the very best functional outcomes.
Our philosophy is a simple one: To treat everyone as though they are part of our family with compassionate care and dignity.
We understand that caring for a loved one can be stressful and taxing on your time, and will try to accommodate your schedule whenever possible in making appointments. If need be we will come to your healthcare facility whenever possible, or your home if necessary – as long as we are able to deliver quality care in that environment.
We also believe in giving back. That’s why you will see us volunteering with the Chattanooga Therapeutic Recreation Department helping physically challenged children enjoy active lifestyles in the great outdoors and working with the Area 4 Special Olympics sharing in the joy of individual athletic achievement. We partner with the Jordan Thomas Foundation to bring prosthetic care to those who cannot afford it on their own and support Medical Teams International in their Advantage Haiti program by staffing a prosthetic and orthotic clinic in Les Cayes, Haiti. We know that the folks we help are no different than we are and we rejoice along beside them in their achievements.
Senior clinician Jim Rogers, CPO, FAAOP has practiced in Chattanooga since 1985 and is licensed in both Tennessee and Georgia. Jim has broad experience in the treatment of pediatric disorders, especially cerebral palsy and neuromuscular disease. He has worked closely with physicians and therapists from Boston Children’s Hospital, Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Niswonger Children’s Hospital and Emory University as well as our own T C Thompson Children’s Hospital to solve complex problems that allow children to enjoy increased function and experience an active lifestyle.
Senior and Rehab Care:
Pinnacle is honored to provide services for many of our area’s nursing and rehabilitation facilities. We understand that today’s population is more active than previous generations and we have many unique devices and systems available to help you to maintain a more vigorous lifestyle and pursue the activities you love. Whether you enjoy hunting and fishing, golf, hiking or keeping up with children and grandchildren we can design devices that allow you maintain your edge and keep up with the younger set if you so desire.
Jim has worked with all ages in helping patients achieve high function after suffering limb loss. From the toddler who wishes to keep up with her siblings, to the returning war hero who desires to return to his unit or resume his activities as a spouse and father to the husband who simply wishes to dance with his wife once again, we have provided some of the most sophisticated prostheses for challenging cases and some of the simplest yet functional for those with less demanding needs. The key is that we determine what is best for you in concert with you and your family, based upon realistic functional potentials. We will always provide you with the appropriate technology to meet your needs but never more technology than is essential. Upper limb amputees can be assured that Jim’s extensive Upper Limb Prosthetic experience will ensure a prosthesis that is functional as well as cosmetic.
Lower Extremity Orthotics:
Posterior Tibialis Tendon Dysfunction is one of the most prevalent disorders of the adult lower extremity. Regardless of your vocation this orthopedic disorder can limit your function quickly and profoundly. No one in this area has more experience dealing with PTTD or has returned so many people with this disorder back to function. We have a variety of orthoses to deal with whatever stage of PTTD you present and can work with your physician to insure you are functional again. Whatever disorder plagues your foot and ankle, we can evaluate your mechanics and offer you creative solutions to limited function.
Jim has cared for many professional, college and high school athletes and brings his knowledge of the mechanisms of injury in various sports into the design of orthoses and prostheses that allow athletes to compete again without risk of further injury or loss of competitiveness. Whether you are playing linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, point guard for the Chattanooga Mocs or running for your high school track team we have the knowledge and technology to help you heal and get you back in the game.
