We can fit your child with the prosthetic device they need to thrive.
Dealing with the reality of your child’s limb loss or limb difference can be overwhelming, regardless of the cause. You may ask yourself if your child will ever regain independence, if they will succeed in school, if they will play sports, or if they will be able to participate in everyday activities. Know that these concerns are real, valid, and normal, and with pediatric prosthetics, your child may be able to successfully adapt to new environments, move towards independence, and ultimately, live a full life with plenty of opportunity.
At Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, our approach to pediatric prosthetics is that no two children are alike. Every child who comes to us has a different background and story, and we take this into account as we help take care of our youngest patients. We view our pediatric patients on an emotional, social, and physical level, so we can design the right prosthetic solution for their life.
When fitting children with pediatric prosthetics, we consult with their physical therapist, occupational therapist, pediatrician, and other professionals involved with their care to develop the best possible outcome for your child in the present and the future. We offer upper and lower limb pediatric prosthetics, as well as specialized or activity-specific prosthetics designed for playing musical instruments, sports, etc.
Your child will receive excellent care when they work with us at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics. For additional information about pediatric prosthetics and our approach, reach out to us today.
