Certified Prosthetic Orthotic Assistant
Spencer Wolinsky has been in the prosthetic & orthotic field since 2005 where he began as a technician. From the start he had a drive to be involved with patient care whenever possible.

He joined Impact Prosthetic Solutions in the summer of 2012 and has very much enjoyed being a part of our patient care team. "There's really just nothing like seeing someone stand and walk for the first time after receiving their prosthesis and knowing you were able to be a key part of their road to recovery." He regularly attends conferences and seminars on the newest technology and techniques as part of his continuing education. Spencer lives in the neighborhood with his wife, Melissa, and the world's greatest dog, Corgan. He is an avid soccer player who can be found on fields around town during his free time.
Certified Prosthetist / Resident Orthotist
Justin Webb, Certified Prosthetist/Resident Orthotist, received a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Medicine from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Master Degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics from California State University Dominguez Hills. His passion for the field or prosthetics and orthotics stems from a traumatic accident that occurred over 15 years ago that left him as an amputee. He uses his experiences to advocate for patients and to ensure they have the most comfortable fit and that their overall mobility is enhanced.
As a teenager in 2002, Justin was involved in a traumatic automobile accident in Mount Airy, N.C. One day after high school wrestling practice, his stepfather took him for a ride in his brand new car. Less than a quarter mile away from his house they hit a guard rail while going around a curve. The car accident left Justin stranded in the woods with both of his legs shattered. He was transported by emergency helicopter to Baptist Hospital and woke up 10 days later in the intensive care unit. Unfortunately, he learned thereafter that his stepfather had passed away at the scene.
Justin was inpatient at Baptist Hospital for about 4 months and experienced 27 surgeries. His right leg was amputated and his left leg was saved but resulted in him having drop foot. He states that going through the process of surgery after surgery was the toughest time in his life, and he thought he would not make it through. Following his hospitalization, he was discouraged and depressed about the entire situation.
But things eventually changed for the better when he was fit with his first prosthesis and was able to walk again. This life changing experience caused him to pursue a career and education in the field of prosthetics and orthotics. Being a prosthetic user has made him appreciate the details in ensuring a perfect fit. He believes that every detail matters with a custom fit prosthesis especially when you desire to wear it every day. However, overall he states that the most important aspect is CARING. He takes pride in his work and enjoys the challenge in constantly trying to make a better prosthesis.
