John Warren is the Director of New England Clinics at Medical Center Orthotics and Prosthetics (MCOP). In 1993, John was a SCUBA diving instructor when a SCUBA tank exploded, resulting in the amputation of his right leg. After a succession of positive and negative experiences with prosthetists over the years, John’s desire to make a difference for amputees culminated in a degree from UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he focused his studies on prosthetics and became the first resident in prosthetics at the facility.
After six years with the military hospital, John accepted an offer from Bionix – previously known as iWalk – to be their regional clinical manager responsible for supporting the sales and development of the revolutionary BiOM-powered prosthetic ankle across the Northeast and Upper Midwest regions. This role allowed John to move back to the Boston area and was where he worked until joining MCOP Boston in 2015.
Today, John focuses on helping amputees of all backgrounds and mobility levels to #MoveForward with advanced lower limb prosthetics and personalized clinical care. John especially enjoys building unique, custom sports prosthetics, and has built prosthetics for scuba diving, biking, running, mountaineering, and more over the years.
His personal interests in sports continue to fuel his passion for helping other amputees enjoy active pursuits once again. When not at work, John resides in West Roxbury, MA with his wife, Allie, and his son, Jason, and enjoys getting outdoors, running, skiing, and cooking.
