Get to Know our Staff: Philip Pitt, Prosthetics & Orthotics

What is your job title/your role at Scottish Rite for Children? My job at Scottish Rite for Children is as an orthotics and prosthetics technician.

What do you do on a daily basis or what sort of duties do you have at work? On a daily basis, I fabricate all types of prosthetic and orthotic devices. I also see patients for repairs of their devices as needed and manage an inventory of supplies used for fabrication.

What was your first job? What path did you take to get here or what led you to Scottish Rite? My first job was a housekeeper at a summer camp in the mountains. After that, I worked at a hospital in Southern California in the orthotic and prosthetics department for seven years before ultimately relocating to Dallas to work at Scottish Rite.

What do you enjoy most about Scottish Rite? The thing I enjoy the most about Scottish Rite is being able to help provide great care and devices for the children that come through the organization. I also think participating in the 2023 Amputee Ski trip to see the work we do in action was an awesome experience.

Tell us something about your job that others might not already know? We have a building next to the parking garage where all our prostheses are fabricated. 

Where is the most interesting place you’ve been? The most interesting place I have visited is a tie between London, England, during a trip to Europe and Vancouver, British Columbia.
