Collier CCS Paneled Pediatric Practitioners: Focus on Prosthetics

Choose a prosthetist who treat families as well as  children.

The first step towards healing is speaking with a pediatric practitioner who listens.

When your child needs help, or has an ill-fitting prosthesis, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. You need someone who can answer your questions and make your child feel comfortable during sometimes difficult discussions.

It is also vitally important for your practitioner to understand your child’s developmental stages, and how they will transition into different devices as they grow. They will need new device training and assistance with adjustments. Our caring and compassionate practitioners make patient care their first priority, within your child’s comfort levels and with the education they will need to use their new limb.

Our Director of Prosthetics holds a degree in psychology, which allows him to better care for patients with limb loss — and he is a terrific listener. Each patient is unique and deserves to be treated as a whole individual, not just as an amputee.
