About Us

Our Mission

To be fiercely committed to each patient and not give up until every patient is comfortable and satisfied with their prosthesis. To help our patients regain their independence and reach their goals.

Clint Jonutz

Prosthetist, C.F.O.

(916) 671-3417

Clint Jonutz has been practicing prosthetics in the Sacramento area for the past 18 years. During that time he has established himself as a fiercely committed practitioner who will not give up until each patient is comfortable and satisfied with their prosthesis. He has a wonderful relationship with his patients, many of whom feel like they are his only patient and get his undivided attention and care. Many patients come from hours away (even from different states) because of the quality of his care. He is driven by his desire to help individuals regain their independence and get back to their normal daily routine. He is a strong believer in early education for new amputees. The sooner they know to take care of their residual limb, the more successful they will be as a highly functioning amputee. He enjoys the unique challenge that each patient requires because of their different and individual needs.
Clint enjoys spending time with his wife of 23 years and their 4 children. He is active in his local scouting program and enjoys mentoring youth. When he has time, he enjoys playing basketball, running and any activity that involves water…especially the beach with his family.

Patient Coach

Cruz is Thrive’s amputee coach and is an ABC Certified Fitter of Orthotics. He is a traumatic below knee amputee, due to a motorcycle accident over 17 years ago. Because of this, he brings a unique perspective that he is able to share with our new amputees on what to expect during their rehabilitation process. He is able to give them hope and direction during the healing process. Cruz is a positive, energetic, active amputee and very passionate about educating amputees. He also facilitates an amputee support group that meets monthly. He has been Clint’s patient for the past 13 years and the two of them have worked together in creating the early rehabilitation program for hospitals. He has an infectious personality and a zest for life that makes him a real asset to our team.
When Cruz is not helping others, you can find him riding his Harley or working as a referee on the high school football field. He has 3 kids and 1 grandchild.
