While product knowledge has been critical to Seacoast Prosthetics’ success, our passion is people. In fact, you have a big say in everything that takes place here. We listen to what you say and how you feel before we even think about possible solutions.
If truth be told, we are not interested in selling any products. We are more concerned about you as a person. Sure, we take pride in studying and using the latest technologies, but our design and build process is guided by your emotional and physical needs.
Building a Better Life
Getting a new prosthesis or custom brace is a major life-changing event, which is why we do not consider this a business nor our role one of mere form and function. We seek to improve and enhance your everyday life.
Yes, we fit and construct artificial limbs, but we also build relationships. Why? Because technologies change, humans change, bodies and needs change. We are in your life for the long haul—through thick and thin. We are there for literally every single one of your steps along the way.
Whether the goal is forward, side to side, or backward, we keep you moving in whatever direction you need to move in your life. For us, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.
Combining Technology with Superior Patient Care
You drive the design and build process. After all, you are the one who will wear the devices we build. We believe the best solutions are ones we collaboratively create together with you.
We want the products we build to feel like an extension of you rather than an external mechanical device.
Who “We” Are
Seacoast Prosthetics Founders Chris Croasdale, CP and Chris Phillips, CPO possess more than 25 years of combined experience in fitting and building artificial limbs and custom braces. Working together for more than 10 years, both gentlemen share more than a first name. They share a passion for people.
When I was born, I was missing my left leg below the knee, so I kind of grew up in the field. It’s why I can relate to people about the day-to-day struggles wearing a prosthesis. My ability to bond with my patients in this way helps me understand what they are experiencing.
My goal is simple. I want our patients to be successful and feel they’re heard and part of the process. We can work together to create a successful outcome. In talking to people, I find that one thing they love to do and I make sure they are able to do that.
This is a very personal process for everybody. Losing a limb—or its function—is definitely a loss. When we get them walking again, though, it’s not unusual to see people in tears. Many people literally feel life is better than it ever was. It simply doesn’t get much more moving than that.
To achieve such outcomes, we must remain flexible and adapt to changes in technology in a rapidly evolving industry. What I enjoy the most is using these latest technologies in creative ways to achieve a better result than people might expect to achieve. Together with the patient, we redefine what is possible.
