“I love building relationships with people while creating custom tools that empower functional independence and help lead to fuller lives. “
Hello, my name is Noah Nemgar.
When a close family member experienced above-the-knee limb loss, I witnessed his progress and was especially interested in how advances in technology led directly to increases in his quality of life. I decided then to pursue a career in orthotics and prosthetics. Now, I love building relationships with people while creating custom tools that empower their functional independence and help them lead fuller lives. This field requires that practitioners be problem solvers, and I relish opportunities to connect and create with people while helping to solve their problems.
My post-secondary education journey began when I earned a degree in business administration from St. Norbert College. The journey continued at Century College, where I studied the technical and clinical aspects of the orthotics and prosthetics field. I next earned a master’s degree in orthotics and prosthetics from Concordia St. Paul. After that, I completed an orthotics residency in Phoenix, Arizona. During my residency, I worked hospital trauma cases, assisted with physical therapy, and created custom assistive devices for people experiencing illness and injury. After completing my orthotics residency, I completed my prosthetics residency at Limb Lab. I now practice as a certified prosthetist orthotist in Limb Lab Rochester.
