About Gyasi M. Cooper, CP

Gyasi attended Purdue University for his undergraduate degree, receiving his Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership & Supervision. Subsequently, he received his Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics from the University of Pittsburgh.

Gyasi became a below-knee amputee himself in 2009 as the result of a malignant tumor in his left ankle.  The love and interest Gyasi has for prosthetics, and most importantly, patients, stems from his own personal experience as an amputee. Becoming an amputee as a teenager, Gyasi faced a whole new world of challenges as an individual with a physical disability. Additionally, as a developing teen, his self-esteem suffered drastically. It is for this reason as Owner/Practitioner, Gyasi feels the need to empower other amputees and individuals with physical disabilities with the knowledge that you alone are your own biggest obstacle.

“Never allow anyone to tell you what you can’t do. Only you can limit what you are capable of."

Gyasi enjoys watching anime, video games, writing poetry, working out, and most of all, making people laugh.
