Lawall is excited to announce William Smith CO will be joining our team. He is an ABC certified orthotist and licensed orthotist in Pennsylvania. He started in the field of Orthotics in 1985 working as a technician, and became certified in Orthotics in 1991. Smith has worked in many hospitals in Pennsylvania, but primarily with Magee Rehabilitation and Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation serving their patients recovering from strokes, spinal cord and brain injuries.
Smith’s introduction to orthotics was not the standard one. In fact, he first earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Smith says he felt it was a natural progression to be drawn to the field of orthotics because it is the perfect blend of science and art. “I love the field and am so inspired by the doctors, therapists and technicians, all working together for a common goal, to help patients with challenges. I feel that it is much more than a job, it is extremely rewarding and I love my work.”
When not working Smith enjoys the fine art of landscape painting and his work is included in collections such as The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Delaware Art Museum as well as many public and private collections in the US, Europe, and Japan. Smith lives in Philadelphia with his wife and two teenaged sons.
