Our Core Values
Victory O&P had its start several years ago, when the father of the owners, the late Rev. Wayne G. Smith, had his limb amputated due to diabetic complications. Zach, Dave, and their family quickly saw the benefits of prosthetics. The prosthesis became an area of interest to both Zach and Dave. They decided to attend O&P technical school together. They graduated at the top of their class and became talented and successful technicians. They worked as technicians for a couple of years before furthering their education and moving into practitioner-level positions.
Zach and Dave both worked for several orthotic and prosthetic companies before starting Victory O&P in Johnson City in 2001. Since its inception, Victory O&P has become the premier orthotic and prosthetic provider for Northeast Tennessee and the surrounding area. Our original staff consisted of Zach Smith, Dave Smith, Aaron Smith, Jeremiah Smith, Kelly Smith, Yumiko Smith, and Dianne Smith.
Since its founding in 2001, Victory has expanded from its single office in Johnson City, to include locations in Kingsport, Bristol, and Knoxvville, Tennessee. The organization’s professional team has grown as well, with each practitioner equipped to offer patients the most advanced, customized solutions to help them achieve their functional goals. We, however, owe our success to our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ.
I Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
