Eric Green, CP

Eric Green, CP, is a certified prosthetist at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City. He has been making prostheses since 1989. He started his career as a prosthetic technician at Hittenberger Prosthetics in San Francisco, California. He soon moved to St. George, Utah, where he started his own prosthetic and orthotic practice, serving adults and children in southern Utah. Fourteen years later Eric moved to Salt Lake City, and started working at Shriners Hospitals for Children in 2004. He wanted to focus his efforts on making prosthetic devices for children because they are so resilient and ready to figure out how to adapt to life using their devices.

Eric appreciates that Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City cares for the diverse needs of every child. Not only are children allowed to receive the devices they need regardless of their families' ability to pay, they are also empowered to pursue the activities of their choice, often finding devices that assist them as they ski, run, swim and more! Two of Eric’s previous patients have competed in the Paralympics; a sprinter and a skier. Several of his younger patients are training to compete in the Paralympics one day, and he is honored to help them on their journey.

When Eric is not making prostheses, he likes to go canyoneering, mountain biking, road biking and backpacking. He also enjoys spending time with his four children.
