Ronnie has spent the past decade of his career working with industry leader, Prosthetic and Orthotic Associates, in Orlando, Florida. He has implemented cutting edge fitting techniques for lower limb amputees. His specialties include numerous bilateral, hard to fit, and complex cases. This foundation has empowered him to problem solve challenges of all types, achieving a comfortable, high function fit for his patients. Treating military veterans, paralympic gold medalists, and amputees of all walks of life his goal is to help others reach theirs.
Ronnie’s passion is helping others push themselves, facilitating over fifty climbing, running, and fitness clinics for kids and adults living with limb loss across the United States. “There is nothing better than seeing someone do something they didn’t expect” says Dickson as he helps people break out of their comfort zones, learning how to get the most out of their prosthesis. “It brings a huge smile to my face.”
Through this work he earned the Duncan Wyeth award, an accolade for outstanding community service given by the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine.
Ronnie loves being outside, climbing, and moving. “It makes me so happy to move, our mobility is something that most people take for granted, but it is one of the most important gifts we are given.”
Through his time growing up in Venezuela, and working in South America, Ronnie speaks Spanish fluently. “There are so many who don’t have access to prosthetic care, we are lucky in the United States to have access to care and help people from all walks of life.”
