Pediatric care is a specialization of DP&O. We are committed to working with children who have orthotic and prosthetic needs. Orthotic and prosthetic treatment designs are individually developed in cooperation with family members, caregivers and other health care professionals to ensure a child centred approach to intervention. We work with all members of the healthcare team and provide the most up to date techniques, components and designs possible to ensure that we realize the goals of each orthotic and prosthetic treatment.
One of the major prosthetic and orthotic goals for children is to achieve maximal physical alignment to build a body that will function throughout a lifetime.
