Allegheny Orthotics and Prosthetics began its operation in Johnstown in 1976 under the name of Johnstown Artificial Limb and Brace Company. The company was founded by John Roberts Sr. and his son Charles E. Roberts.
In 1983 after completing his Orthotic and Prosthetic education at Northwestern University, John A. Roberts, Jr. joined the company. By this time the company had a second location in DuBois. Then in 1986 opened a third office in Altoona, Pa.
On January 1, 2000, John formed John Roberts Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a "Allegheny Orthotics and Prosthetics" with the Altoona and DuBois divisions. In order to better accommodate our patients, we saw the need and opened a third location in State College in January 2003. In January 2006, we opened our Bedford County office.
Allegheny Orthotics and Prosthetics is accredited by the American Board of Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics and is a member of the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association. Our four offices employ highly trained staff members made up of Certified Orthotic and Prosthetic Professionals, Registered Technicians, skilled Technicians and Administrative and Office Personnel.
