Don Cummings, Alumnus of the Prosthetics-Orthotics Program
ā€œPersonally, one of the ways I feel that I am an expert in the field is in being a consumer and user of prostheses, then also in being a fitter, a provider of prosthetic devices.ā€

Don Cummings was a freshman in college when he caught bacterial meningitis, and as a result, had to have amputations on both legs. Through the process of his own rehabilitation and using prostheses, he became interested in working with people with disabilities and the field of Prosthetics-Orthotics. Don also knew he wanted to work in pediatrics, which led him to a residency and a career at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.
