Come See The Difference.
The decision to choose a prosthetic facility, whether it is your first endeavor or if you find yourself a seasoned amputee looking for a change, is not one to take lightly. Prosthetic care is something that will be needed throughout your lifetime, and utilizing the ability to have a free consultation can help put your nerves at ease and help choose which prosthetic facility is right for you. Not all prosthetic facilities are alike, and they DO NOT all provide the same level of care.
“When I go somewhere, I want to look as pretty and normal as anybody.” says Fern, a below-knee amputee. “It really seemed like it was the first time that anyone seemed to listen or hear me.”
Your consultion should begin with introductions of yourself, and your family or support individuals to those within the prosthetic facility. In order to get the appropriate care, one needs to build a repore with those who will be providing the service. That repore allows you to get any and all your questions asked and answered, but also allows the prosthetic professionals the ability to provide a long term care plan that helps meet the your immediate needs AND your long term goals.
Fourroux Prosthetics is proud to announce the opening of our newest full service patient care facility in La Vergne, providing prosthetic services to amputees in Nahsville, TN and the surrounding communities.

One of our own, Mr. Brandon Rowland was honored as an inductee to the Jackson -Madison County Sports Hall of Fame in Tennessee at the Carl Perkins Civic Center on April 18, 2019.
Brandon Rowland is recognized for his outstanding athletic and personal achievements, despite immense adversity he has experienced since childhood. Just being selected as a candidate for Sports Hall of Fame is quite an accomplishment in itself, given the list of candidates that the committee must decipher through over the course of a year.
Brandon's determination and success in overcoming a disability along with his superior athletic performance resulted in back-to-back National Wheelchair Basketball Association championships, and three national titles in his division at the National Amputee Golf Association tournament.
Brandon is a winner in every sense of the word as he continues to educate and assist other amputees/patients in living life to the fullest!
An amazing honor for an amazing guy that we are blessed to have on our team.
In addition to the friendly staff and outstanding service that amputee’s receive while visiting Fourroux, one of most shocking benefits in the eyes of our patients is that most receive their new well fitting prosthesis the very same day they have their appointment.
“I was blown away at how fast they created my prosthesis.” says Peggy, a below-knee amputee. “I went in for my appointment, and left that same day with a new leg that fit fantastic. Now, I can’t imagine having to wait days or weeks for a new prosthesis to be created.”
One of Dee’s favorite pastimes is riding horses. She can’t imagine what it would be like not being able to enjoy one of her favorite hobbies.
“I would be miserable if I didn’t have a good-fitting prosthetic. It allows me to live my life and do the things I want to do, which is what everybody wants." says Dee. “I think initially my goal was just to get back riding ‘cause that’s my happy place.”
Dee understands the value in finding a good prosthetist, and a prosthetic facility that listens, works with you to determine together what you need based on how you live your life. A prosthetic facility that has the technology and the staff to get you back to living your life.
“You see so many amputees that have a very negative outlook and it’s hard not to. I mean I’ve run into people that are in their wheelchair and I’m like “Why don’t you have a prosthetic?” recalls Dee. “Because I can’t get one that fits” or “I can’t” you know, it’s hard. I mean it’s like grounding. You ground someone and it’s hard to live your life. I think they give up; they cannot find a company to do what they need so they give up.
“And when I went to Fourroux, it was totally different." explains Dee. “I have met people that care, people that take the time to sit down and listen to what you want to do, what your goals are, how active you are or that you want to go chase your grandkids or chase your kids and then try to come up with solutions to get you where you need to be, to do the things that you want to do.”
So, Dee’s message to those who are struggling with their prosthetics…
“There are prosthetics out there available that can do what you need to do. I don’t think there’s anybody that’s too hard to fit. I do everything that I did before. It’s terrifyin’ to think you’re givin’ up everything. I understand that mentality, but, don’t give up. Go to Fourroux!”
