Valley Prosthetics & Orthotics is the area’s leader in pediatric orthotics and prosthetics. Having worked with both Shriners Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), we have a passion for kids! The unique challenges that this population presents make choosing the proper provider a must.
If so, we would love to see them! Children receive many different diagnoses where orthotic or prosthetic care is indicated. Often children are sent to doctors out of the area in such locations as Philadelphia or Hershey, but they live locally. If some type of care is indicated and prescribed, look to obtain that orthotic/prosthetic care close to home. Children with the following diagnoses may benefit from our services: low muscle tone, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, scoliosis, cranial asymmetries, and amputations. All of these can be addressed at VPO with resulting superior clinical outcomes!
We are the area's leader in Cranial Remolding Helmet treatment! Through our clinical partnership with Boston Brace, our utilization of the Boston Band Helmet has resulted in superior clinical outcomes. Our staff has experience reaching back to the beginnings of the Boston Band design, which gives us a great deal of clinical competence in treating both plagiocephaly and brachycephaly.
Do you have a child in need of prosthetic care? Tired of making the long drive for prosthetic care? Steven Chu, CPO, and his staff have more than 15 years of experience with prosthetic care involving children. This includes congenital and traumatic amputations on children as young as 1 year old to adulthood. Take the time to schedule a consultation with us and see that you don't have to drive to specialty hospitals to obtain top-quality care for your child's needs.
Call our office to schedule an appointment or request to have a clinician visit you or your family member at the hospital where you are staying.
