Walter A. Nance, BOCO, OTC, Early Onset Scoliosis Casting Technician
My career in Orthopaedics began in 1982 in the United States Navy where I was trained as an Orthopaedic Tech. After my honorable discharge from the Navy, I attended the Orthopaedic Tech Certification program at University of California, San Diego. After receiving my National Certification for Orthopaedic Technician I worked in a private practice. In the year 2000, I became the Lead Orthopaedic Tech at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
In 2005, I moved to New York and joined East Coast O&P to seek certification as an Orthotist. I was certified as an Orthotist in 2010 by the BOC. I trained in the treatment of early onset scoliosis and Mehta casting at Shriners Hospital in Chicago. I’ve increased my knowledge and continued my specialization while working with Dr. Michael Vitale and the Columbia Orthopaedic staff.
