Two Boston Legacies Cross Paths: United and Old South Church
Because limb loss affects people from every facet of society, we find ourselves in many different places addressing many different tasks. In this case, the quest to modify a prosthesis so our patient, David, could continue to professionally play the organ brought us to Old South Church in Boston.
Paul Martino, C.P. and our medical director Brandon Green, D.O. can be seen discussing David’s expectations and making on the spot alignment adjustments to get the “perfect pitch”.
The organ (called Opus 308) was built in 1921 by E.M. Skinner & Company in Boston. It’s amazing to think that while this organ was being constructed, not too far away, United Prosthetics was turning out prostheses in its seventh year of operation!
