Christopher Baschuk's bio

This content was provided by Christopher Baschuk "Chris developed an interest in how things work from an early age. This curiosity has driven him to a very interesting career that combines the real-world with a unique application of theory. Chris holds a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Utah, where he first became exposed to the profession of prosthetics and orthotics. His undergraduate research was in osseointegration for attaching above knee prostheses to the body via a bone anchor. This earned him the honor of being named an Undergraduate Research Scholar. After graduating, Chris became very involved with healthcare research while he worked at the University of Utah's School of Medicine as a clinical study coordinator for several different cardiology studies related to atrial fibrillation. As an Eagle Scout and later in life as a missionary in the favelas of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Chris developed a strong desire to compassionately serve and help others. His passions for helping people live to the fullest of their potential as well as tinkering and building things made the profession of prosthetics and orthotics an ideal fit for him. In 2011 he enrolled at the University of Texas Southwestern School of Health Professions Master of Prosthetics and Orthotics program. While a masters candidate he received several national scholarships, fellowships and awards. Upon successful completion of his masters degree, Chris completed his residencies in both prosthetics and orthotics at an independent practice in Idaho where he honed his skills and gathered more training that was focused on upper limb prosthetic patient care. Chris' interest in upper limb prosthetic patient care has grown rapidly. His interest has led to his gaining additional skills in providing patients with a variety of different high tech prosthetic options. Chris is always working on a project to push the envelope and provide better patient outcomes through adaptations of new technologies and materials science. This has led him to be able to provide our Handspring patients with unique solutions incorporating custom silicone sockets, liners and electronics not found anywhere else. Chris is very involved in the profession of prosthetics and orthotics at a national level as a member of several committees of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists and as the Treasurer for the Upper Limb Prosthetics Society. Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife and two little girls in the outdoors; hiking, biking, rock climbing and camping."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Christopher Baschuk "Every day I go to work knowing that I have the opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.  I get great satisfaction from being able to help those with limb loss or deficiencies regain mobility and function.  Every patient I treat has different needs and objectives.  I pride myself in being able to listen to my patients and then provide them with rehabilitation solutions that are uniquely tailored to them in both form and function.  I believe comfort and function are the most important aspects of the prosthetic and orthotic devices that I design and fabricate."
