New Sign New England Orthotic and Prosthetic Systems, LLC is one of New England's leading providers of high quality orthotic and prosthetic patient care services and products. The partnership was founded by certified orthotists and prosthetists who were dissatisfied with large impersonal corporations where the constant pressures of consolidation and cost containment can hamper effective patient care. In addition, they did not want local patient care decisions to be affected by administrators in some far away corporate headquarters. These professionals wanted to truly make a difference and established a practice based upon their philosophy and management protocol. Call Toll Free: 888-551-8588 or e-mail at info@neops.com
