Michael Mazerall, CPOA
Certified Prosthetic-Orthotic Assistant
Philosophy: The best advice I could offer is to always be caring and patient. I think it's important to remember that often times the patient is having a much worse day and needs your compassion and care. Having been in that position myself, I always try to remember when it was I who needed the help being offered. If it wasn’t for those caring people I may not be where I am now.
Bio: In December 2007, I entered the O&P field after rehabbing as an amputee at Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital. I have a strong mechanical background, which opened the door to train as a technician at Orthopedic Rehabilitation Systems, located at BRH. There I was educated in prosthetic and orthotic fabrication. I followed that by continuing my education and becoming certified as an Orthotic Prosthetic Assistant before being hired by Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics, where I was preforming prosthetic and orthotic fabrication, at the company's headquarters in Avon, MA.
I then relocated to our Weymouth clinic to offer prosthetic and orthotic tech support. In addition to the patient care in the Weymouth clinic, I also service the Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital for orthotic patient care. I have been with the Weymouth clinic since 2017, serving as a Certified Prosthetic-Orthotic Assistant and technician for Boston O&P.
