Kevin Matthews CO/LO Advanced Orthopedic Designs
Kevin C. Matthews, CO/LO

Practitioner and CEO  

 I have over 25 years of experience as an orthotist; 13 of which have been spent here in San Antonio, TX. I have worked for 3 of the largest O&P facilities in San Antonio and finally decided to open my own practice.  I was trained as an Orthotist at the Academy of Health Sciences at Brooke Army Medical Center in 1982.  I was honorably discharged in 1993.  Kids are my specialty, but I am certainly not limited to Pediatrics. I do work for "children" of all ages, 0-90. I truly enjoy my work.  I thrive on creating new and innovative designs to use in my Orthoses. While most patients do well in standard designs, sometimes we need to think outside the box to achieve optimal results. I consider each case individually and believe in individualized care plans. I have learned a great deal in my years and like to share the knowledge. I teach every year at our annual state meetings; I taught five hours at a recent Oklahoma meeting and I was invited to teach. I am proud of the practice we have built and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us.

Alex
Alexander Leos, LOA

Vice President and Practitioner's Assistant

Alex is Kevin's nephew and has been with the company since it's inception. He started as a senior in high school working part-time, then full-time when he graduated from Roosevelt in 2007. Alex is currently a junior at UTSA where he is a math major. Once he gets his degree he will start at Northwestern in their orthotic and prosthetic program. He can do just about any job in the lab, but his future is as a practitioner taking care of our patients.


 

Reggie
Reggie Garza, CPO/LPO

Practitioner  

Reggie is a state licensed and ABC Certified 
Prosthetist/Orthotist and joined our practice in June 2009.  While he is certified in both disciplines, his true love is Prosthetics.  He enjoys helping patients achieve their maximum potential after amputation. He is a 
talented and caring practitioner with over 15 years of experience.  

"San Antonio is my hometown, and I have an employment history in several practices in town.  I am well-versed in lower-extremity Prosthetics and love high-tech stuff.  If a patient can't make it to our facility, I will gladly see them at their homes or during 
physical therapy.

Johnnie
Johnnie Yocham, CPO/LPO

Practitioner  

Johnnie is also a state licensed and ABC Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist.  Johnnie started practicing in 1965 while serving in the US Army during the Vietnam 
War and has been practicing ever since.  He established the Orthotic Specialist course for the US Army's Academy of Health Sciences. The course he set up was accredited by the American Board for Certification in O&P, no small feat.  He was honorably discharged in 1978 after serving 20 years. He now only practices Prosthetics and has quite a following of patients.  He is exceptionally knowledgeable in all the latest high-tech componentry and is C-Leg certified (Computer Leg).  His specialty is the hard-to-fit amputee.  He has seen some pretty gruesome amputations from the war and has had to be pretty inventive.
We are very pleased to have Johnnie's knowledge and experience on our staff.  He brings a lot to the table and someone with his experience is very hard to find. Kevin has known Johnnie since 1982 when Johnnie was his primary instructor in school.  "Johnnie and I also worked together for a few years in the nineties at Hanger O&P.  We've kept in touch and I'm glad to have my old friend working with us."

Office Manager 

Rita is our office manager. She worked with Kevin previously at another O & P company  for a year and a half. She was exceptional and as soon as Kevin could afford to hire her he did. She has way too many jobs to write here; suffice it to say she is responsible for all things administrative in our practice. 
Rita has been in the healthcare profession for over 15 years and has worked for several different physicians as well as at an O & P facility here in San Antonio. She joined our practice early in 2010.
"I am very happy to be working for Kevin. In all the years I have been working, I have never met anyone as passionate as Kevin is toward making a difference. He is the best at what he does and I am happy to be a part of his team." -Rita
"Rita is absolutely the best I have ever worked with. She is exceptionally organized, dedicated, trustworthy, and efficient. We are truly blessed to have her, and now that we do she  isn't going anywhere. She is quite indispensable."-Kevin
