Our Fairview Orthotics and Prosthetics team provides state-of-the-art orthopedic bracing and prosthetic devices (artificial limbs) to help you regain mobility. We’ll work closely with you to select the best device and teach you how to use and care for it. With proper training and care, these devices can help you return to the activities that are important to you.
Orthopedic devices provide stability and support to help guide or limit movement of a specific body part. With proper fit, training and care, these devices can help treat a wide variety of temporary or permanent muscular and skeletal disorders.
Prosthetic devices are artificial parts (commonly limbs) used to replace a part of the body that is missing because of a birth defect, accident or amputation.
Our prosthetists will consult with you and your physician before surgery whenever possible. They will evaluate your specific needs and use the latest in computer-aided design and manufacturing to ensure your new limb fits well and performs at its best.
Edema (swelling) can result from a variety of conditions. Left untreated, edema can result in pain, loss of tissue elasticity and increased risk of repeated infections. We offer a full array of compression garments to help reduce swelling, improve function and lessen pain for people experiencing edema or lymphedema.
We are committed to helping women and men feel more comfortable and confident following a total mastectomy or lumpectomy. We have a wide selection of products to manage surgery-related symptoms and help you feel better about yourself.
There are many conditions unique to children that can be treated with orthotic devices. Our specialists will work with you and your child to determine the best care option. Some common conditions we treat include:
Infants and children may need a prosthetic device (commonly limbs) due to a birth defect, accident or amputation. Patients younger than 18 should be evaluated by their prosthetist every three to six months. Your child’s prosthesis will require modifications at least once a year, depending on their growth. Our team uses the latest in computer-aided design and the manufacturing technology to ensure an accurate fit.
Our providers are certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics. They have advanced skills and training in the biomechanics of the human body. We provide in-house fabrication and same or next-day custom production. This allows us to give you superior fit and can help expedite your discharge from the hospital.
