Robert "Buddy" Hellner, CPO
Prosthetist / Orthotist
Robert graduated with high honors from Michigan State University in 1972 with a Bachelor's of Science degree. Robert completed his prosthetic and orthotic schooling at UCLA and NYU and has been a certified practitioner in the field since 1978.
Buddy, as he is known to his patients and friends, has had a diverse career experience in both private practice and also as the Director of Prosthetics at the University of Michigan Hospital. He is perhaps most proud of his 25+ years of servicing the needs of our veterans at the Ann Arbor Veterans Hospital.
In addition to his American Board Certification (ABC), Robert has continuously updated his credentials and continued his education to take advantage of all the newest technologies to serve his patients. Most recently he has completed the required courses to offer microprocessor knees (Rheo Knee by Ossur and C-Leg by Otto Bock).
Theresa Wolterman and Stacey Irwin
Theresa Wolterman and Stacey Irwin bring a combined 30+ years of experience to our workplace. They are truly to be considered reimbursement specialists and work hard to provide a clear expectation of service and insurance coverage for all our patients prior to leaving our office. In addition to their knowledge, they always have a smile and a warm cup of coffee available.
Drew has been working with his Dad in the office since he was in high school. He is currently working on his undergraduate degree in Health Care Administration and plans to continue his education by attending prosthetics school.
Residents and Pups
For a small office, Hellner and Associates is a pretty busy place. For the past 5 years we have participated in residency programs at EMU (clinician residents) and Baker College (technician residents) so there are often other 'white coats' around.
Hellner & Associates is also dog friendly and you may be greeted with a friendly "woof” If you have allergies or other dog issues please let us know and we will accommodate you.
