Louis Janzé

CERTIFIED PROSTHETIST

It was inevitable that Louis became a prosthetist. His father was a master mechanic and his mother was a nurse. He inherited their traits to become a true bio-mechanic.

Louis Janze, C.P. (c) graduated with Honours and Awards for Outstanding Achievement from BCIT’s Prosthetic and Orthotic Clinical Program. He obtained a three year residency position at Shaughnessy Hospital’s Prosthetic referral clinic. Exposed to a wide variety of challenging prosthetic cases enabled him to fine tune his clinical and technical skills.

While interning here, Louis realized there was a need for a prosthetic facility in the Fraser Valley, as many of the patients would travel to Vancouver for their appointments. He moved his young family to Abbotsford and opened Fraser Valley Prosthetics in 1994.

Over the years, Louis has lent his expertise to a variety of boards within his profession: President, Vice President, and Treasurer for the Prosthetic Orthotic Association of BC (POABC); Board member of Canadian Association of Prosthetic Orthotics (CAPO), and International Society of Prosthetists/ Orthotists (ISPO); national examiner for the certification of new prosthetists; and BCIT’s student selection committee. Louis was an integral part of a working group tasked with rewriting and updating the National Certification Exam.

Louis is current and up to date with the latest technology and techniques to provide his patients with the best possible outcomes to lead full and active lives.

Deanna Hines BSc. (kin), C.P. (c)

CERTIFIED PROSTHETIST

Growing up, a friend of Deanna's family was a below elbow amputee having lost his arm in a farming accident. He had been an extremely functional amputee for decades working as a hay farmer in Manitoba. He had a specialty prosthesis for nearly every job on the farm, plus an every day arm, and a very realistic looking 'going out' prosthesis. Deanna was fascinated by how all of these worked and that's what got her interested in the field of prosthetics initially. She was always fascinated with the human body and loved building and creating anything with her hands, so the field of Prosthetics just seemed like a great blend of all of her interests.

Deanna graduated (on the Dean's Honour Roll) with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from SFU in 2001. From there she graduated at the top of her class from the Prosthetics and Orthotics program at BCIT in 2004.

She had the privilege of working at several prosthetics facilities over the past 17 years of working in this profession. Her initial time at Fraser Valley Prosthetics, followed by Bionic Prosthetics, Vancouver Orthopedic Group and Russell Prosthetics all helped shape her into the Prosthetist she is today.

"I am very happy to have returned to the amazing team at Fraser Valley Prosthetics in just this past April 2021. Louis, Shelley, Lisa, Dave and I all work together very well and I'm super proud of my 'work family'. Fraser Valley Prosthetics is a smaller facility which I'm very grateful for. It allows us the opportunity to get to know each of our patient's unique needs and really take the time to get to know each of them like extended family members."
