William Lifford, CP

Bill is Progressive O&P’s Insurance Appeals specialist. Bill developed Progressive O&P’s Insurance Appeals Team, and is passionate about fighting for patients’ rights to be fitted with the highest quality prosthesis/orthosis devices.

Bill has been an American Board Certified Prosthetist since 1999; he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers College, Rutgers University in 1992, and holds a Post-Graduate Certificate in Prosthetics from University of Connecticut’s Newington Children’s Hospital. Bill is a member of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists; he’s certified to fit C-Leg™ and Rheo™ microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee technology, Harmony™ elevated vacuum prosthetic socket systems, and is certified in MyoBock™ myoelectric prosthesis.

To me, the ability to walk and function as a human being is not a privilege, it’s a fundamental human right. You are more than your disability and I will work tirelessly to make sure you can be fitted with the orthosis or prosthesis you deserve.
