Connor Pardy

- Biomechanist

MSC, CPO(C)

Connor has a passion for challenges and will never back down from a unique case.  With accreditation in both orthotics and prosthetics, he combines a wealth of knowledge that provides the best care to his patients. He credits 100 percent of his success to his patients.

 

He began his training in London Ontario, in a busy private practice which focused on pediatric orthoses. It was here that he attained his Boston Brace certification for idiopathic scoliosis while being involved in the scoliosis, pediatric neurology and orthopedics clinics. 

 

His career took him to Edmonton where he focused on sports orthoses and complex feet.  He completed his training with a prosthetic residency in Calgary.  He is currently a member of the Limb Preservation Clinic at the Peter Lougheed Hospital dealing with high-risk feet.

 

Connor has volunteered with Broken Earth and has the privilege of providing prosthetic and orthotic services in Haiti.  He believes the integration of technology strengthens the clinical environment maximizing patient success. 

 

When he isn't helping his patients he participates in competitive water polo, which he has coached and played for many years.  In the winter, you'll find him on the ski hill with his family, either skiing or snowboarding.  He would surf everyday if only the ocean was near.
