Don Buethorn, CPO/LPO

Founder and Owner

After first earning a Special Education degree from Western Washington University, I decided to pursue the field of prosthetics and orthotics. I returned to school at the University of Washington School of Prosthetics and Orthotics and graduated in 1980.

After graduating, I served a two-year internship in Boise, Idaho, upon completion of which I started my own company, Cascade Prosthetics & Orthotics, in Bellingham, WA. Since then I have devoted myself to the development and application of a specialized system of pediatric bracing, called Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthoses, or DAFOs.
