A prosthesis is an artificial extension that replaces a missing body part, such as an arm or a leg. Nemours pediatric Prosthetics Program is one of the largest of its kind on the East Coast. Because children who need a prosthetic will often need coordinated care from other medical areas, you’ll have access to our entire team of Nemours specialists.
Children who are born without certain body parts or who have lost them due to traumatic injury can benefit greatly, physically and emotionally, from using pediatric prosthetics. Today’s pediatric prosthetics are so advanced, they can go a long way toward improving your child’s mobility, functionality, self-confidence and overall health.
