“Coach” TV spot for Springer Prosthetic & Orthotic Services

In July of 2015 Joe Robertson lost his lower right leg due to diabetes complications. He endured seven months of constant pain while a Jackson prosthetist failed to properly fit him with a replacement limb.  Joe and his wife Joann then drove to Springer Prosthetics in Lansing where they got the care they deserved.  Retired from MDOC, Joe is now back in the game as the assistant women’s softball coach to head coach Deb Thompson for Spring Arbor University’s high-spirited Cougar team.  Joe mentors the team drawing on his 35 years of experience playing fast-pitch softball.

Joe Springer gave us hope and most of all he would give Joe his life back as much as was possible…and of all the health care professionals I’ve met there is NO ONE that is truly as caring a person as Joe Springer.”
