In the fall of 2006, Chris was in a car accident that badly injured his right leg.
After struggling with the healing process, he decided that it would be better to have his leg amputated. Now, over a decade later, he aims to spend as much time outside enjoying an active lifestyle as he can. His positive attitude and outgoing energy make it hard to resist getting up and putting on rollerskates yourself or tagging along for a hike.
Yanke Bionics is proud to have been part of helping Chris…
In 1999, Tim was struck by a vehicle while feeding dairy cows along the road near his farm.
He was badly hurt, and his right leg had to be amputated.
His determination and strength had him back working on the farm only a few months later.
Yanke bionics had been by his side since his amputation and we've been able to help Tim continue to do what he loves. Take care of his farm.
In April of 2019, Cody was in a workplace accident.
His knee was badly injured, and he suffered further complications from the surgery meant to repair his knee.
For the last few years, Cody has been fighting to regain his mobility. Now, with his new C Brace from Ottobock Cody is feeling confident and excited about getting back to an active lifestyle with his family.
We here at Yanke Bionics are so happy to see the immediate difference that the Ottobock C Brace had made in Cody's life.
Max is a newer patient at Yanke Bionics. He came to us around 6 months ago with some issues stemming from an improperly fit socket he'd been dealing with for a while.
Now, he's excited for the nice weather to arrive so he can get back out on the golf course.
Max has the kind of positive attitude that will infect the room, and he was so pleased with the results of coming to Yanke Bionics that he sat down with us to chat for a bit.
Mary has been coming to Yanke Bionics to help with her foot pain for 20 years. We sat down to talk to her about her experience with Yanke Bionics and how Roger, her Clinician, has helped her to remain active.
In the summer of 2009, Justin Seliskar suffered a crushing injury to his left foot. He fought for weeks, but ultimately they had to amputate. His journey of recovery and his story are both inspiring.
Justin is no stranger to fighting, before his accident he was already deep into the world of combat sports. Now, he's known around the world as one of the best trainers... and a man you want in your corner.
He's worked with some of the greats, counting some of the best fight coaches and fighters…
George came in for adjustments on his new bilateral C-Brace from Ottobock and we talked to him about how this brace has impacted his life. He came to us a few years ago for his first braces, and we're so excited to help him with his new orthosis.
- The C-Brace is a microprocessor-controlled leg orthosis that responds to everyday movements and situations in real-time. This helps ensure safety, stability, and confidence in users’ everyday lives. The C-Brace allows people with paralysis in their legs to walk…
How has Yanke Bionics improved your life? Yanke Bionics has resurrected my career. After I fell on 10/26/17 I had to have 13 surgeries which eventually led to a BKA on 5/18/18. I thought my career as a police officer was over. After being referred to Yanke Bionics, I started to believe I could return to duty. I received an Ossur energy storing foot on Feb. 2019. I was able to return to full duty as a police officer on 6/1/19.
What has pleased you most in your course of treatment at our practice?…
The staff at Yanke Bionics were very professional. Roger has so much experience, I have never had anyone that could tell me what was wrong and could make me feel so much better. I would recommend Yanke Bionics to anyone who needs help improving their quality of life.
Yanke Bionics improved my life 100%. I had back surgery in 2012. From the surgery, I couldn't pick up my left foot. So I had to limp for 6 years. My doctor from Crystal clinic, recommended I see Roger at Yanke Bionics. Roger looked…
The new brace works very well and feels comfortable. The new brace is easy to put on and take off. Also, driving more easily with the footpad on the brace.
We were welcomed and treated very well. Roger was very helpful and knew what I needed.

“As a lifelong amputee, I have worked with good and bad prosthetists.

In February of 2005, I had an industrial accident that resulted in the traumatic amputation of my left hand and wrist. Within 2 weeks of my accident, Yanke Bionics had already set up a meeting for me to become familiar with my options concerning a prosthetic hand. From the beginning of the process, I had the good fortune of working with Nathan Wagner from Yanke. Nate was very helpful in assisting me in making my decision as to the type of prosthetic hand I would need and want. I decided…
