Inspired by a desire to help others, Jules Bauer and his son, Les Bauer, LO, opened a medical facility in 1971 that specialized in orthotic bracing and rental medical supplies. After quickly becoming known in the Tampa community as dependable and dedicated professionals, they decided to focus solely on bracing and prosthetic limbs. In 1981, Les assumed leadership of the company that is known today as Westcoast Brace & Limb. Les’s son, Greg Bauer, LPO, CPO, became part of the team in the late 1990s and is now the company President.
Since its establishment, WCBL has forged integral relationships with physicians, therapists, case managers and hospitals around the country and even abroad.
