Now, Sydney not only looks forward to every new pair of tennis shoes, but also swimming and horseback riding.
Sydney Klepper does not remember what her life was like before her leg prosthesis. She was born with tibular dysplasia – a congenital birth defect- and became an amputee at the age of two. Klepper has only heard stories and seen videos of her life pre-prosthesis. Her parents were told by their previous prosthesis provider that it would be months before Sydney got on her feet after the surgery. She started walking within a few weeks.
Now, Sydney not only looks forward to every new pair of tennis shoes, but also swimming and horseback riding. She says keeping up with her peers is easy while in the water, but running can still be a challenge.
Klepper credits her ability to lead an unhindered life to Bulow OPS. Michelle Prichard first referred her to Bulow OPS during a “Mending Limbs” event. Through Scott Moore CP, PTA, the Kleppers found out that Bulow OPS was opening an office in Murfreesboro, which was one of the reasons why they chose it for Sydney’s prosthetic needs.
To new amputees, Sydney has only one thing to say: “Don’t let your amputation hinder you! Find a good prosthetic provider like Bulow OPS and enjoy doing all the things you love.”
