Pediatric Patient Care in Prosthetics and Orthotics
Our Prosthetic & Orthotic Practitioner team serves patients at our three locations in Northern California.
Children are not small adults.
Understanding the developmental milestones and their effect on orthotic and prosthetic designs is especially important.
The Collier Pediatric Team is here to help you and your child through their stages of growth. We want to create a relationship with the patient and his or her family that will create positive results for years to come.
With many years at Shriners Hospitals for Children, our practitioners have seen and treated a wide range of needs.
