Our goal is to help every child move and feel their best — and lead an active, independent life. Our multidisciplinary clinic provides individualized care for children who could benefit from a prosthesis, whether they were born without a certain body part or lost it due to illness or injury. We have special expertise and experience working with children with a wide range of conditions like limb deformities. Our experts team up to recommend the best prosthetic devices for each child. The prosthetic prescription can be for the lower extremities (foot, above and below the knee) and/or upper extremities (fingers, hands, above and below the elbow). Because children who need a prosthetic device will often need coordinated care from other medical areas, you’ll have access to our entire team of Nemours experts and specialists, including: rehab psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, prosthetists, orthopedic surgeons, and physiatrists (rehabilitation medicine doctors). Appointments are held in the gait and motion analysis lab.
