Practitioners of OrthoPro
David A. Blackman, CPO |
ABC Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist
Originally hailing from Germany, David moved to Oakland, California in his pre-teens & subsequently graduated from University of California, Riverside with a BA in Business Administration. Having an orthopedic surgeon in the family (his father), David was motivated to pursue O & P as a career, so from UC Riverside, he went to Northwestern University and graduated with his degree in orthotics & prosthetics. Along with his wife, Jeanette, David has been in practice in Nevada since 1996, primarily in Elko, but with a mobile practice that covers the entire state! In his off time, he runs Blackman Ranch, which is currently being outfit with solar power, and for fun, he enjoys hiking, scuba diving, and a once a year vacation to Mexico with Marshall Black from OrthoPro Lewiston. David believes in practice integration, so each OrthoPro has an agreement to see each other's patients, free of charge, so that we can best serve the Nevada & Idaho communities. He is the proud owner of OrthoPro of Reno, Inc, OrthoPro of Elko, and several other locally-operated businesses.
