Orthotics and Prosthetics
Orthotics are devices that support or correct parts of the body that are weak, injured or not working properly. Prosthetics replace missing body parts. Whether your child's needs are temporary or lifelong, our Orthotics and Prosthetics team will work with your family to assess and treat your child's unique situation to meet your family's goals.
In growing children and teens, fitting orthotics and prosthetics is especially important. At Seattle Children's, we specialize in caring for children of all sizes and ages, from birth through age 21. Our experts support your family through every stage of the process: meeting to assess your child's needs and goals, taking careful measurements to ensure proper fit, building your child's device, fitting it and following up to make sure the device functions well as your child grows.
